Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.
The name of this grex, Naranja en Flor, is Spanish for “Orange in Flower.” I was so excited by the potential that I made this cross twice this year! Over the years, I have been impressed by the breeding qualities of both Trick or Treat and Spring Fires. I am so confident that these will turn out great, I'll bet money! And I'm not a gambling man… These will have strong stems holding 10-15 or more starry orange to red flowers above the foliage in March. Mature plants will be 14-16” tall and produce a spectacular display. How's that for confidence in a prediction?
Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description details the expectation of this hybrid.
