Brassia NOID

I got this plant a few weeks ago and at the time I couldn't tell much about what it is. Now one of the spikes has produced a single 6-inch tall flower so I can now say that it is a Brassia hybrid. It looks familiar but I can't name it.

The plant itself is in need of a repot and now is a very good time to do it. There are three new growths to go with the six mature pseudobulbs. I was going to offer it as a free orchid but I just weighed it and see that the shipping will be in the $8-$9 range, too much for a NOID. The package would be well over two pounds. I will take it to the orchid society raffle table instead.

Of course, if you want it...

  2. Ok, it's yours. Next year you will have three to six spikes with several flowers on each.

  3. I believe this plant may be Alcra. Lillian Oka (Alcra. Hawaiian Delight) x Onc. orthostates. I have one that looks just like it.
