Maxthompsonara Bryon Rinke
Cta. Green Tyger ‘H&R’ AM/AOS x Btmna. peruviana ‘SVO’ HCC/AOS
Green Tyger (Pab. jugosa x Glta. grandiflora) has lime green flowers with burgundy stripes and stippling with a red striped lip. It is a smaller plant standing about 8” tall and flowers 2 times a year and grows well in intermediate conditions. Btmna. peruviana (awarded as colleyi) is a warm growing species where 65 degrees nights and 88 degree days are prevalent it its natural environment. This hybrid was made to keep plant size to 8” tall (small for a Zygo), produce 4-5 green flowers with mahogany-red stripes and/or blotches, but most of all to add warm tolerance into a Zygo. These 3” plants have been growing well under my Cattleya conditions of 55-60 nights and 85-95 degree summer days. A very interesting new type of Zygo breeding that will do well in the cool of winter and the heat of summer. Pictures of the first blooms of the cross in a 3" pot 1 , 2
