Blooming, Care and Culture, Classification, Growing Indoors

I define “easy” orchids as those that can be grown indoors in mild climates in homes that have the heating on during the daytime in winter.

Three golden yellow species – O. flexuosum, O. sphacelatum, and O.varicosum – combine their best qualities to produce this excellent, brilliantly colored Hawaiian hybrid, bred in 1990. The delightful flowers, commonly called dancing ladies, are carried on side branches to the main stem, each bearing fifty to eighty blooms that last for three to four weeks in the summer. This orchid, which produces pseudobulbs, is very easy to grow in most climates and is a popular houseplant. It is also grown extensively for cut flowers. Its long, attractive sprays look stunning in flower arrangements
