Howeara Lava Burst 'Puanani' AM/AOS

Another collection plant is Howeara Lava Burst 'Puanani' AM/AOS. It is just starting to bloom. The spikes will continue to develop and branch for a long time. This year is the best ever, seven spikes. Even better, in some years it has bloomed again in December.

This plant is mounted on a 6-inch branch with growing live roots trailing 20 inches down. Lava Burst is Howeara Mini-Primi x Rodriguezia lanceolata

The effect will be even better in six weeks, but I couldn't wait to show it off!

  1. Striking colors of blooms and foilage. These seem difficult to attain.

    1. The plant is very high light, hence the pale color. It might be ok with 1000 ft/candles less, but light is essential for blooming.
