Introducing the Blc. Cornerstone, a mesmerizing orchid hybrid that is sure to captivate any orchid enthusiast! This exquisite orchid is a result of the cross between the Blc. Bryce Canyon and Blc. Mem. Crispin Rosales, creating a botanical masterpiece that boasts large, deep magenta flowers measuring an impressive 6.5 inches in diameter.

Prepare to be wowed by the impeccable round shape of its blooms, which are nothing short of breathtaking. The Blc. Cornerstone is a true showstopper with its vibrant color and striking presence.

But the beauty of the Blc. Cornerstone doesn't stop there—this stunning orchid is also blessed with a delightful fragrance that adds an extra dimension to its allure. Imagine being greeted by its sweet scent every time you enter the room!

Cultivating this botanical gem is a rewarding experience, and with the right care, you can ensure that it thrives and blooms magnificently. Here are some tips to help you cultivate your Blc. Cornerstone:

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

  2. Temperature: Maintain a warm environment, ideally between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) during the day, and slightly cooler at night. This mimics its natural habitat and encourages healthy growth.

  3. Humidity: Orchids thrive in high humidity levels. Aim for humidity levels around 50% to 70%. You can achieve this by placing a humidifier near the plant or by placing it on a humidity tray filled with water and pebbles.

  4. Watering: Water your Blc. Cornerstone consistently, allowing the top inch of the potting mix to dry out between waterings. Ensure proper drainage to prevent waterlogged roots, which can lead to rot.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every two weeks during the growing season (spring and summer). Reduce fertilization frequency during the dormant season (fall and winter).

  6. Repotting: Repot your Blc. Cornerstone every 1-2 years, preferably in spring after flowering, using a well-draining orchid potting mix. This allows for fresh nutrients and provides ample space for root growth.

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 these care tips and the stunning beauty of the Blc. Cornerstone, you can enjoy its magnificent blooms from September well into the winter months, making it a delightful addition to any orchid collection. Don't miss the opportunity to adorn your space with this truly remarkable orchid hybrid!
