Sobralia callosa

I've had this for nearly a year, and this is its first bloom. It has buds on another growth that have not started opening yet. The flower is about 2.5" from top to bottom, and the plant is less that 1 foot tall. The plant looks totally artificial; the leaves and stem appear to be formed from hard dark green plastic, and the flower has the substance of crepe paper. Hoping for better form from later blooms.

Lovely, clear photo of this intensely coloured bloom.
Looking forward to more.

These bloom? I've been waiting a year, which is not so long. But I have friends who have had this species for several years and still can't get blooms. What is your secret, Tucker?

RE: Sobralia callosa

Beautiful orchid and beautiful photo.

RE: Sobralia callosa

So lovely!

All Sobralias are sunlovers. Mine are in the garden without any shade and bloom like daisies. - Ian. Nice one Tucker.
