Introducing the Meloara Ching Sun Bright Star 'Red Plum'—a breathtaking hybrid creation born from the fusion of Meloara Tzeng-Wen Tricia and Rhyncholaeliocattleya Shinfong Honey. This botanical marvel boasts an irresistible allure, captivating with its dark pink petals adorned with delicate white dots, evoking an air of sophistication and grace.

The pièce de résistance of this botanical masterpiece is its magnificent flower, boasting a two-tone splendor that mesmerizes the senses. A vibrant yellow splashed pink lip steals the spotlight, complemented by an alluring texture that adds depth and character to each bloom. The broad red sepals, reminiscent of a bright red lip, contrast elegantly against a golden yellow backdrop, creating a striking visual symphony that is nothing short of breathtaking.

But beauty is not the only trait of the Meloara Ching Sun Bright Star 'Red Plum'. This hybrid is a prolific bloomer, offering the delight of its exquisite flowers twice a year. With each bloom, expect to be enchanted by 4-6 waxy flowers per inflorescence, ensuring a spectacle that never fails to captivate.

Cultivating Tips:

  • Light: Provide bright, indirect light for optimal growth. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate leaves.
  • Temperature: Maintain daytime temperatures between 70-80°F (21-27°C) and nighttime temperatures around 60-65°F (15-18°C).
  • Humidity: Keep humidity levels around 50-70%. Use a humidifier or place the orchid on a tray filled with pebbles and water to increase humidity.
  • Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of the potting medium feels dry. Allow excess water to drain away to prevent waterlogging.
  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-4 weeks during the growing season. Reduce frequency during the dormant period.
  • Potting: Repot every 2-3 years using a well-draining orchid potting mix. Choose a pot that allows for good airflow around the roots.
