Zygopetalum Hollandra ‘Ever Springs’

Leave a comment

I have had Zygopetalum maculatum orchid for a few years and I love it. The blooms look unusual and have beautiful fragrance. Though the leaves are prone to black spotting,it does not effect the plant at all. To reduce the problem it is better to keep the foliage dry and give the plant good air circulation.

For some time I had tried to find another variety of this orchid, and the last time I spotted one in Collector’s Corner in Garden World. It was the only one available and I would not miss the chance to have it.

The tag says Zygopetalum Hollandra ‘Ever Springs’. The plant still looks very young with a short spike of three flowers. The colour and shape are slightly different from the one that I’ve already had. Hopefully, later on in the future both the plant and the blooms will be taller and bigger.

Anggrek Dendrobium nobile – Puasa

Dendrobium soft cane April 28 2017

Tahun 2013 yang lalu kami dapat ‘mystery bonus’ tanaman anggrek Dendrobium nobile yang berbatang lunak. Anggrek inilah satu-satunya yang saya punya dari jenis tersebut. Beberapa anggrek Dendrobium berbatang keras yang kami punya mudah berbunga, terutama jenis D. delicatum. Waktu itu tanamannya masih kecil dan beberapa tahun kemudian terlihat seperti kuncup bunga mulai timbul tapi setiap kali mengering. Juga tanaman terlihat kurus. Apa yang salah?

February 14 , 2017: Cattleya amethystoglossa (could be hybrid). Thick and rigid bifoliate leaves on a long cane-like pseudo bulb (up to 30 cm long). The waxy flowers are candy pink with spots and the lips are dark maroon. With all bifoliate Cattleya orchids, repotting and division are done only when the plants are active and growing  a new bulb with new roots have started to grow underneath it.
