Brassanthe Maikai

Brassanthe Maikai - Flower photo by Richard LindbergOne of the Brassanthe (Bsn) Maikai divisions is blooming. It grows well in Sonoma in a pot and as a mount in Napa. From the original single plant I now have seven divisions in various stages of development.

It is the cross Brassavola nodosa x Guarianthe bowringiana. Renamed from Bc Maikai, registered in 1944, still popular after 70 years.

This particular division needs to be re-potted. Since I have enough to sell a couple this year, I will clean it up and up-pot it.

  2. Very nice, I tried to post a comment, or at least to contact you about this plant, but no luck. Anyhow, if you get this, Richard. I'd be very interested in a division of this plant when you decide to sell it. I am interested in all the Brassavola hybirds as well as any Richard Mueller crosses I can find. Thanks, Tony

  3. I have spare divisions, let me look at them. I am busy today and will not be able to get to Sonoma, but I'm sure I have one that is good enough to sell.

    1. Did you get the email? Seems not. http://www.backbulb.com/BB0562C.asp is a backbulb division that is developing nicely.
