Howeara Lava Burst 'Puanani' AM/AOS

I dropped in on the Napa Orchid Society show and sale at the end of March. It is a very small show but they managed a nice display. While I was there, this mounted plant with its 20-inch trailing roots grabbed my attention.

Lava Burst is Howeara Mini-Primi x Rodriguezia lanceolata. It is blooming three months earlier than last year. There are four spikes with branches still growing. The flowers are quite long-lasting so I will be able to get it to a show-and-tell.
