Fragrant Zygopetalum Blue Blazes orchid, previously bloomed
- Easy to grow
- In the Zygopetalum family of orchids
- NOT in flower now
- 20 inches high or more
We love zygopetalums because they are easy to grow and produce wonderfully fragrant flowers with mahogany spots over olive green in the petals and sepals, and a wonderful blue / purple lip.
Zygo Blue Blazes is Zygopetalum Blue Banks x Zygopetalum Kiwi Geyser. The flowers will be rather fragrant, and pleasingly so, usually at mid-day.
The ones we have are mericlones, so they all should be beautiful. They have multiple growths and they stand 16 inches high or more measured from the bottom of the 4-inch pot.
Previously bloomed, not in flower now. Will bloom again in season. Please be prepared to repot on arrival.
This orchid's generic name, derived from the Greek word "zygon," means "yoked petal." It refers to the yoke-like growth at the base of the lip caused by the fusion of petals and sepals Thse are native to humid forests in South America at low- to mid-elevation regions, with most species found in Brazil.
Grow this one in bright indirect light, in a temperature range of 55 to 85 degrees. Try not to let it dry out completely, but don't keep it sopping wet. Fertilize twice a month. We include free growing instructions. One of these in bloom at an orchid show would sell for $45 or more, so be patient, and enjoy the blooms when it flowers.
