Cirrhopetalum roxburghii

Cirrhopetalum roxburghii - Flower photo by Richard LindbergIn 2008 I got a large Cirrhopetalum roxburghii plant. Cirrhopetalum roxburghii - Flower photo by Richard LindbergIt was growing every which way and there was no good way to divide it. I ended up breaking it into several small pieces that I potted in pea gravel.

Cirrhopetalum roxburghii grows in the Ghanges delta. It is warm to hot growing, low light, even watering and feeding throughout the year.

This piece is still in the same 2-inch pot. It has nine pseudobulbs with one growing over the edge. One interesting aspect of the flowers is the color. The spike that had the least light has a pretty purple tinge.
