Laelia sincorana

Laelia sincorana - Plant photo by Richard LindbergI spent most of the weekend doing this and that at the show and sale. I also had plenty of time to look at the sales area. I kept most of my money in my pocket but there was one plant that kept calling my name.

Laelia sincorana grows in Brazil on rocks and bushes in Sincorana mountain range at the 3000 to 5000 foot altitude range. It is cool to warm growing and does best mounted. Give it a completely dry winter rest.

I am going to take it out of the pot and mount it. There are 10 pseudobulbs so I may divide it. As with any orchid work, I have to see the roots before deciding anything.
