Product Description

This kind of plant always gets oohs and ahs at our shows, and it makes a nice addition to any orchid collection. It's a really nice mericlone of an AM-awarded orchid. The breeding is Mtssa Olmec x Brs Edvah Loo. The flowers are large, spidery and gorgeous, approximately four to five inches from top to bottom. The color is mahogany and pink, with interesting olive green bands. The lip has beautiful pink tones. Mature plants can have multiple spikes, with 6 to 8 flowers on each spike. These are blooming size with one or two pseudobulbs. They are freshly repotted into 4 inch pots. The longest leaves are 8 to 10 inches and we always ship the largest. These are likely to flower within 12 months or so, which is our definition of blooming size. Please note that this orchid is not in flower now. We have a number of these and we'll pick out a nice one for you. We always ship the largest. The picture shows the kind of flowers to expect, and the plants in our greenhouse. We will ship in the pot. Medium light and water are best, fertilize weakly twice a month. You can buy with confidence. If you are not happy with what you receive, simply return it within 14 days and we will provide a full refund.

What a big, healthy plant. It looks like it is begging to bloom. 16" tall with fat, full pseudobulds. I hope I can care for it to keep it in such amazing condition.

Edit: Oops. After looking at it closer, there is a 4" spike coming up. 6 stars.

The pseudo bulbs on the plant that arrived were actually fairly old and shriveled when it arrived. However, two new pseudo bulbs have since grown from the old ones, and it has recently put out a bloom spike with five buds on it. It took almost a year after receiving this orchid, but it seems to really be doing well now, even if the old pseudo bulbs still look shriveled and terrible.

EDIT: (5/4/15) The plant has been growing beautifully and it currently has three bloom spikes with at least six blooms on each! This has easily become one of my favorite orchids!

This plant is in excellent condition. Roots are nice and healthy and the bulbs are gigantic. Will definitely purchase more in the future.

My orchid arrived in excellent condition, and it was bigger and healthier than I had imagined. It has been potted and is doing well. Hoping for a bloom within a few months so I can see the splendor that drew me to this orchid.
