Laelia purpurata werckhauseri x schusteriana sib

The compot contained six nice seedlings and I potted those in 2-inch pots. In between those there were four other seedlings. These looked strong enough but were being strangled by the other seedlings. I put those together in a new 3-inch compot.

Laelia purpurata grows in Brazil and needs a dry winter rest. It is fragrant, cool to hot growing and needs bright light. It can bloom any time from late spring into fall.

These seedlings will winter in the greenhouse. Even though Laelia purpurata will do just fine outdoors in our climate, these are seedlings and need some time to grow before they are ready to face the winter weather.
