Fairly Easy Orchids – Burrageara Jungle Moss
Author: adminNo Comments
Blooming, Care and Culture, Classification, Growing Indoors
I define “fairly easy” orchids as those that, while suitable for a beginner, may not be quite as tolerant of less than ideal conditions as the “easy” orchids.
This is a fancy new hybrid raised in 1991 within the Oncidium alliance, from which come so many fine and varied plants for indoor growing. It combines Cochlioda, Miltonia, Odontoglossum, and Oncidium. An exciting and colorful hybrid, it produces a tall, branching flower spike with a scattering of numerous flowers gaily patterned in red, yellow, and white. The plant is strong and robust, and has pseudobulbs similar to a true Odontoglossum. It needs to be grown cool and because of its complex breeding requires a bit more understanding than other hybrids within this alliance. Flowering time varies, but you can expect this plant to bloom for up to six weeks as the latest pseudobulb begins to mature and swell.
Flower Size: 2 inches (5cm) across
Flower Spike: 2 feet (60cm)
Plant Height: 1 foot (30cm)
Pot Size: 5 inches (12cm) long
