Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS

Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS - Flower photo by Richard LindbergI don't usually talk about the plants I have for sale, but I have mixed feelings about one of them. It is the mounted Cirrhopetalum Elizabeth Ann 'Buckleberry' FCC/AOS. I like it very much, but it is a second 'Buckleberry' plant and it is taking quite a lot of hanging space among the mounts.

The plant is mounted on an 8x11-inch piece of cork bark. There are three mature pseudobulbs and two new growths. This is shaping up nicely and will not overgrow the cork for some time. It bloomed last year and I would be looking for two spikes this year.

Here it is almost August already and I am starting to think about the fall. The largest of the pots with the Laelia anceps will stay out through the winter, but I have a lot of plants outside. Quite a few of them will have to be back in the greenhouse by November first. So I am looking for space, making some tough calls.
