In Spike Now, Vuylstekeara Melissa Brianne 'Dark'
These are first bloom mericlones in 2 inch pots and the plants are 12 or so inches tall. They have some of the darkest, red flowers around. Expect 4 to 6 flowers around 2 1/2 to 3 inches wide in 2 to 3 weeks. Once mature the plants produce lots of flowers on multiple spikes. One award winner had 16 flowers and 6 buds on four spikes.
They grow quickly and can bloom twice a year when happy. They are intermediate growers, that means temperatures from 60 to 80. They don't want to be outside in Texas in the summer. They make great houseplants. Moderately bright light with maybe a touch of early morning sun, but no direct mid-day sun is best. Don't let them get completely dry and fertilize with a dilute balanced fertilizer every 2 to 3 weeks. They are ready to move into larger pots when they are finished blooming.
