Laelia lundii

Laelia lundii - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThe first of the auction plants to be divided is the Laelia lundii mount. It was not firmly attached to the mount because there had been a lot of sphagnum and it seemed the plant in most need of attention.

Laelia lundii - Plant photo by Richard LindbergLaelia lundii grows in Brazil on the coastal mountains. It is warm growing, fragrant and blooms winter and spring.

The plant came apart into 6 lead pieces very easily. The overall health of the plant is good considering how few roots there are. I want to get these mounted so any root growth will be against the cork and will attach right away. I am not sure that there will be a lot of growth now but when it does start in spring I won't have to worry about it.
