Pot Size

7-7.5" pots large plants - NOT In-Spike ($115.00)

A classic re-make originally registered in 1899. This plant heralds from Bletchley Park, an English country house made famous by the British codebreakers' deciphering of the German Enigma machine during World War II. The park had glasshouses with orchids in the late 1800s and early 1900s.


This remake is incredibly vigorous and the plants are easy to grow and flower. The flowers can emerge from late August through November as they develop buds at slightly different times amongst the group. Of the first dozen that flowered, all but one had the dark coloration. These would be 3N plants and although most will be dark due to the 4N tenebrosa, there will be a few light colored ones due to the lighter pink color of the petals from the warscewiczii 'Hartman's #9'. There is an added bonus in that these plants have the wonderful fragrance of plumeria!

 This is a hybrid we re-created here at Orchids Limited.

 All plants are of a mature size as seen in the photos with 7 or more growths. Nearly all will have one flower sheath when listed on the In-Spike/Bud/Bloom section of our website. They can begin sheathing in July and will flower anywhere between August to November at the very latest.

An orchid plant may arrive in bud, in bloom or in various stages of in-spike development. A plant in-spike can take anywhere from 1 week to 2 months before flowers begin to open. We are one of the few nurseries to ship orchids in spike or bloom. Most of the time our carefully wrapped orchids in-spike or in-bloom arrive in good condition. However, due to conditions beyond our control, we cannot guarantee that all flower spikes, flowers, or buds will arrive in perfect condition.

An orchid will arrive while it is not currently spiking or blooming due to being either before or after its bloom season. Check the "Bloom Season" information on the product page to see when the plant is expected to spike and flower. Many orchid lovers and hobbyists prefer plants that are not in-spike in order to watch the first stages of the spike emerging all the way through to the reward of the bloom! If you are sending a plant as a gift, you generally want to send the plant in-spike unless the gift receiver would prefer otherwise.
