Neostylis Orchid

Hybrid Orchid
Neostylis Lou Sneary ‘Bluebird’
Synonyms: Vandachostylis

This cute compact Orchid bloomed most of the winter in the greenhouse. It is a hybrid between Neofinetia falcata and Rhyncostylis coelestis. The fragrant flowers are small but show a rich rare blue/indigo color. Every time I thought it was done blooming it would throw a few more flowers. Expect up to three blooming cycles per year under bright light and warm conditions.
