Trichocentrum Sonoma (longicalcaratum x pulchrum)
Trichocentrum Sonoma (longicalcaratum x pulchrum) #536 ('5387' x 'Stony Point') (approximately 25 seedlings per flask).
The Hybrid: This is a recently named hybrid of two choice trichocentrum species. Both parents are small plants with large, long-lasting flowers. I have bloomed several of the seedlings and have more in bud. They bloomed just a bit longer than 4 years from pollination and are blooming on small plants. The flowers are long lasting
Culture: I grow both parents under these conditions: 55 degree minimum night temperatures in moderately bright light. It likes to dry slightly between waterings, but not be left dry for sustained periods. I water it most every morning unless it has not yet dried from the day before. It is best grown mounted to show off the somewhat pendant flowers.
Second seedling to bloom:
Capsule parent: Trichocentrum longicalcaratum '5387'
Pollen Parent: Trichocentrum pulchrum 'Stony Point'
