Its prolific nature is evident in the abundant production of flowers, often enveloping the entire plant.

Flowering: Witness the splendor of Clowesia warscewiczii x Clowesia rosea, as they bloom at the culmination of their growth cycle. Monitor the size of the new bulb, as larger bulbs signify a greater likelihood of flowering. Handle with care post-bloom, as touching the flower may cause immediate expiration due to activated pollinia.

Temperature: Maintain an Intermediate-Warm to Hot climate during growth, with a slight nocturnal drop. Even during dormancy, ensure warmth prevails.

Water: Adjust watering according to growth phases, maintaining consistent moisture during the growth period. Avoid complete drying out, especially during peak growth, yet allow for dormancy dryness to avert bulb rot.

Humidity: Target 50-60% humidity during growth, monitoring for sap accumulation in lower humidity. Reduce watering and sustain at least 25% humidity during dormancy to prevent desiccation.

Light: Offer bright indirect to medium direct light in summers, emphasizing morning or evening sun exposure. During winter, maintain low light levels for dormancy.

Media: Opt for a flexible medium like sphagnum moss, bark, perlite, or coconut husk mix, ensuring adequate drainage. Repot upon new growth emergence, positioning for optimal growth.

Fertilize: Feed generously during active growth, escalating as the bulb matures to enhance flowering potential.

This is a blooming size in a 4" pot, newly repotted, about 1 to 2 years to bloom, grown from seed, limited!
