Zygopetalum Orchid

Zygopetalum Orchid

This is an unnamed cultivar of Zygopetalum Orchid that displays all the dramatic traits of the species. The beautiful colors, fragrance and sharply pointed petals are all apparent. They are easy to grow and like to bloom. The waxy flowers can last up to 8 weeks and can be used as a cut flower.

Not a fussy grower Zygopetalums like warmth and light during the day and cool nights. This one started blooming in the middle of the greenhouse with a regular watering and feeding schedule. These Orchids have been in cultivation for a long time and many varieties have been developed over the years.
