A flask of 12+ seedlings of Sudamerlycaste ( formerly Ida ) fimbriata. Very ready for deflask with sound top growth, decent bulbs and good roots. A truly spectacular species in flower. A medium sized, cold to warm growing epiphytic or lithophytic species found in Colombia, Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador at elevations of 1000 to 2800 meters under scrub in rocky soil with shady conditions and, in river canyons and on decaying tree stumps, with ovoid pseudobulbs carrying 2 deciduous leaves that blooms in the later winter and early spring on a laxly erect, several at once, to 4″ [10 cm] long inflorescence with nocturnally fragrant, waxy, long-lived flowers. Sent by Express Post, deflasked and transferred into a light weight, robust plastic container protected with moist sphagnum moss and / or styrene foam beads. They do well if potted in loosely packed sphagnum moss or small to medium bark. They prefer their roots to remain at least moist at all times. Fertilise regularly, straight away with dilute soluble fertiliser only if in Sphagnum moss and / or small amount of pelletised Chicken Manure such as Rapid Raiser or Dynamic Lifter if mounted or potted in pellets or bark. Place out with the rest of your similar plants. Don’t mollycoddle.
Comprehensive deflasking notes available if email address supplied.
