Introducing our stunning hybrid cross, the Calanthe Rose Georgene x Calanthe First Lady! This exquisite orchid boasts an array of captivating features that will elevate any garden or indoor space.

The Calanthe Rose Georgene, a delightful hybrid itself, brings forth its charming lineage of Calanthe Saint Aubin x Calanthe rosea. Its counterpart, the Calanthe First Lady, carries the distinguished traits of Calanthe vestita x Calanthe Rozel. When these two exceptional varieties are crossed, the result is truly spectacular.

Our hybrid showcases medium-sized flowers with a mesmerizing bicolor pattern. Picture elegant petals in shades of pink, purple, and white, gracefully transitioning towards the enchanting labellum. Delicate gradients of garnet, fuchsia, and dark pink add depth and allure to each bloom. These exquisite flowers sit atop long, slender flower stalks, emerging proudly from the top of the pseudobulbs.

One of the most remarkable qualities of the Calanthe Rose Georgene x Calanthe First Lady hybrid is its prolific blooming nature. Despite being unscented, these beauties have the remarkable ability to bloom several times throughout the year, ensuring a constant display of natural splendor.

Cultivating these magnificent orchids is a rewarding experience, and here are some tips to help you nurture them to their full potential:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day, as it may scorch the delicate foliage.

  2. Temperature: Keep temperatures consistently warm, ideally between 65°F to 75°F (18°C to 24°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night. Avoid sudden temperature fluctuations, as they can stress the plant.

  3. Watering: Keep the growing medium consistently moist but not soggy. Water thoroughly when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch, ensuring proper drainage to prevent waterlogging.

  4. Humidity: Maintain moderate to high humidity levels, around 50% to 70%, to mimic the orchid's natural habitat. Consider using a humidity tray or a room humidifier, especially in drier environments.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your Calanthe hybrid regularly with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength during the growing season. Reduce feeding during the dormant period.

  6. Repotting: Repot your orchid every 2-3 years or when the growing medium breaks down. Use a well-draining orchid potting mix and ensure adequate space for the roots to grow.

This is a blooming size imported bare root orchid division; newly repotted in a 4" pot; about 1 to 2 years to bloom; Grown from seed; Limited!

With proper care and attention, your Calanthe Rose Georgene x Calanthe First Lady hybrid will reward you with its stunning blooms and graceful presence, adding a touch of elegance to any setting. Enjoy the beauty of nature's masterpiece in your home or garden!
