Default Blc. Firecracker - Put on your shades!

Blc. Firecracker
This one was from the Henri Compagnion collection a 1st time bloomer since
'99 & it wasn't
a seedling.

I have a Doritis Firecracker with the same fluorescent coloration. But
smaller flowers are easy to take. This one can knock you over with one
glance. Thanks for the opportunity to feel young again.

Glad you like it, in its day, not sure of it's background but it must have
been a show stealer!
The plant was what I call a struggling artist back in '99 & it's owner sold
his home along with the
g/h & the young kid that bought the house knew nothing about orchids & too
busy so he sold them all!
Incidentally, in case you worry about being too old with not enough time,
old Henri was 91 & still going
to orchid & Tillandsia meetings.
Cheers Wendy (And now you know the rest of the story)
