Laelia anceps 'Tomiko'

Laelia anceps 'Tomiko'Laelia anceps 'Tomiko' - Plant photo by Richard LindbergWhen I saw this in bloom I fell in love with it. And I am always up for getting another Laelia anceps, especially one as beatiful as this one.

This plant is sold widely as a Laelia anceps variety and it is better know that way. Howerver, it is Schombolaelia (Schomburkia lyonsii x Laelia anceps). I knew this before I took it home, but I wanted it anyway.

Laelia anceps grows well and blooms well. It grows in Mexico and Honduras. It is warm to hot growing and needs a dry winter rest and bright light. If it is dry it can winter outside if there is no hard freeze.
