Howeara Lava Burst 'Puanani' AM/AOS

I had not planned to buy any plants at the show and sale last week. The available plants were nice enough but I was there mostly to see what was going on.

Every once in awhile a plant calls my name and this was one of those. This plant is mounted on a 6-inch branch with growing live roots trailing 20 inches down. There are three pseudobulbs with two spikes on the newest growth. I think it was the roots. They are some of the most beautiful roots I have seen.

Howeara is an intergereric with which I was unfamiliar. I found out that it is a cross between Leochilus x Oncidium x Rodriguezia.
