Blooming Size, Wilsonara Firecat "King Snake"
This one is relatively new, and the flowers are relatively wow!
It's in the intergeneric Oncidium family. Flowers are red with shades pumpkin on the lip and the spike produces lots of them, They should last 5 to 7 weeks. The older flowers will fade to a tawny red. These are mericlones, so the color should hold throughout the run.
The breeding is a mix of orchid genera including Cochlioda, Odontoglossum and Oncidium. It can be grown on the cool side, but should do well in the home or in a greenhouse.
These are first-bloom seedlings in 3.5-inch pots, in spike now for the first time.
Do NOT repot immediately, it may cause the buds to blast. Medium light. Water when almost dry.
We include free growing instructions with each order. DO NOT ADD ICE. Tropical plants have never seen ice -- that's just a marketing gimmick.
Mature plants can have multiple spikes, with a bunch of flowers on each spike.
We have a bunch of these and we'll pick out a nice one for you. The pictures show the kind of flowers to expect, and the plants in our greenhouse.
