Coelogyne multifloral ‘Suwada’ CBR/AOS

This is one of those “hard to find” Coelogynes.  When this plant received the CBR it produced 377 flowers and 178 buds on four arched inflorescence (that’s 135 flowers per).  I have since flowered it an 8” basket with over 35 inflorescences producing over 4000 blooms!!!  Very impressive.  These are well established divisions and are well worth adding to your collection, this is a special plant.

Den. aggregatum (lindleyi) v. majus ('Gold Coin' x self)

These plants are very floriferous - a well-bloomed plant can have hundreds or even thousands of golden yellow flowers.  They are easy to grow through summer: give bright light, and water and fertilize regularly. In winter, provide a cool, dry rest period for 2 months in January and February.  Stop fertilizing, water sparingly and drop night temperatures to 50-55 degrees for best results.  Peak blooming time happens in March-May.  These plants are show stoppers!

Den. jenkinsii ('Awesome' x self)

This miniature species blooms with short spikes of golden yellow flowers.  In many ways, it is similar to its larger cousin, aggregatum (lindleyi); however, jenkinsii does not require the cool dry rest to initiate flowering, making it an excellent alternative.  The small stature of this species makes jenkinsii an excellent subject for mounting.  These like it bright and warm year-round.

Den. Hawaiian Punch (Den. Norma Jackson x Den. Blue Twinkle)

Den. Bruce Gordon (Den. alexandrae x Den. eximium)

I saw my first plant of Den. Bruce Gordon many years ago at the Santa Barbara Orchid Show.  It was so spectacular that it stuck in my mind, and when the opportunity came to acquire some, it was a “no brainer.”  The eye-catching flowers have wavy petals in chartreuse colors with dark maroon spots, all on sturdy stems of 10 to 15 blossoms.  Bloom life is extraordinary, with flowers lasting 2 months or more.

(Den. Bougainville '4n' x Den. Silver Wings '4n')

Den. Bougainville (Den. johnsoniae x Den. phalaenopsis) has beautiful, well-formed white flowers with strong stems, favoring the look of the Den. phalaenopsis parent.  Den. Silver Wings (Den. johnsoniae x Den. eximium) has a large white flower with purple stripes in the throat of the lip.  We are expecting the large, white, well-formed flowers to present themselves beautifully on arching stems.  These long-lived flowers will last up to 2 months.

These two hybrids below were developed to be warm-growing Zygopetalinae, opening new opportunities for hobbyists to enjoy these beautiful flowers.  They have been bred specifically to do well under warm growing conditions with low light, like the conditions in the home and/or under lights.  

The parent plants all grow extremely well alongside my Paphiopedilums, where the temperatures range from 75-85 oF during the day and 60-65 oF at night.  Light levels are 1000-1500 fc.

Have you ever dreamed of having a new hybrid genus named after yourself?  This might be your best chance!  If you are the first to flower SVO 6919, which contains a new combination of 6 genera: Batemannia, Galeottia, Neogardneria,Pabstia, Promenaea and Zygopetalum, let me know ASAP and send a photo, you may be the lucky one. I’ll name the new hybrid genus and the new cross after you or the person of your choice.

***History is made once again!  Congratulations to David Nott and his daughter Lucy!  They were the first to flower the new hybrid genus (Gbs. Green Tyger x Zgm. Dynamite Peru). The new genus is now a Nottara and the grex is Lucy's Sassafras. The full new name is:  Nottara Lucy's Sassafras

Don’t think this could happen? Well, it already did last year with SVO 6995 (Gbs. Green Tyger x Btmna. peruviana (colleyi)), which is now named Maxthompsonara .  The hybrid genus is named for Max Thompson, and the grex for Bryon Rinke. How cool is that??
