4.5-5.5" leafspan - NOT In-Spike ($100.00)

This particular cross is producing thick leaves and are slower growing than regular bellina but should produce thick and large flowers. The first photo is of the 'Ponkan' clone the second photo is of the 'Round Star' clone. This cross also has randomly produced the first and only known 'Rubra', or solid red form. From this cross we have only seen four plants blossom so far and the first one was the pure red one. The other 3 have been highly colored but don't exhibit the foliage charachteristics as the rest of the plants which exhibit the same ploidy characteristics in the foliage with very thick leaves and deep longitudinal lines. Limited plants available. We are uncertain of the chromosome count but they have the appearance of tetraploid plants in the foliage.

IN SPIKE: 
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.

NOT IN-SPIKE:
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.
