Rossioglossum Rawdon Jester

Rossioglossum Rawdon JesterRossioglossum Rawdon Jester - Plant photo by Richard LindbergRossioglossum (Rssgls) contains 6 cold to cool growing species from Central America. These were formerly part of the genus Odontoglossum.

This plant is a primary hybrid Rossioglossum grande x Rossioglossum williamsianum. It is in the Sonoma collection. The new growth looks good but the rest of the plant looks desiccated. The greenhouse is too warm for it and may not be wet enough. It is risky to decide that a plant should be watered more if it is dried out. It may just be root loss when the plant was re-potted in which case the new roots will re-hydrate the plant.
