Laelia lundii

Laelia lundii - Flower photo by Richard LindbergThis is a 3-pseudobulb backbulb division that sprouted in two places. I potted it last September and wintered it in Sonoma. This plant is in sphagnum moss in a 3 1/2-inch pot. It now has two new growths and a spike.

Laelia lundii grows in Brazil on the coastal mountains. It is warm growing, fragrant and blooms winter and spring.

All my other Laelia lundii divisions are mounted. This one seems to be doing the best of all of them. It has the typical pattern of the first generation of sprouts maturing smaller than the original plant.
