Schomburgkia splendida x C warscewiczii

Schomburgkia splendida x C warscewicziiSchomburgkia splendida x C warscewiczii - Plant photo by Richard LindbergThe main part of the tradi that I made with Alexis Pardo of Orquiven Orchids was for a division of my Schombolaelia Paul Storm.

This so-far un-named cross was what he traded for it. This plant is in a 3-inch basket in rock/peanuts with five pseudobulbs and stands nine inches above the basket. It is certainly old enough to be blooming size, so I am hoping for flowers this year.

It was great to be able to trade for one of the divisions. This is a very pretty white flower but has a hard to manage long spike and the flowers don't last long.
