Thanks for the fotos, Charles! Great job growing. I purchased L. fournieri from Wenzel at the WOC in Jan. I placed my keeper into aliflor, about the same size as your lava. I hope to see it bloom next year.

Wenzel was so generous that I had another full sized piece to share with a friend.....and even more was still left over!


RE: Laelia fournieri

Nice Laelia and those pix are great Charles ! What size is the pot it's in ?? I have one that was a gift in a 2" pot that might bloom next season.


RE: Laelia fournieri

Very nice. I believe these rupculous Laelias are now officially Hoffmansegella. I think it will take a while for the new name to catch on somehow.
