Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI put out to the universe that I may be willing to pay shipping or do a trade if anyone has backbulbs to send me. Yesterday I received a box with a dozen Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Jean' pseudobulbs.

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Jean' backbulbsCirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann is the primary hybrid Cirrhopetalum longissimum x Cirrhopetalum rothschildianum. There are two of these being sold, 'Jean' and 'Buckleberry'. It is a great plant with large, long-lasting flowers and easy to grow. A very satisfactory addition to a collection.

There are two groups of pseudobulbs. They are a little small but they are in very good condition. There are a few live roots and a few leaves. I am going to pot them in sphagnum over a base of peanuts and put them in the wet zone in Sonoma.
