Thanks to all who helped or came to Orchid Christmas and helped to make it such an enjoyable evening.
After yesterdays large and flamboyant Laelia anceps we have something completely different today. This is our yellow clone of this variable and small growing species. Native to cool cloud forests in Ecuador and Peru from 1600 to 3000m altitude the species enjoys cool damp conditions and these are shown in the moss that has grown naturally on this plant’s pot.
As you can see there is a small restrepia that has grown there too – a rather nice ‘weed’.
