Introducing the captivating Rhynchodendrum Cabalgata en Verde, a stunning primary hybrid born from the union of Epidendrum ciliare and Rhyncholaelia digbyana. This exquisite orchid boasts a mesmerizing display of fringed lips inherited from both parent species.

Epidendrum ciliare brings its distinctive traits to the forefront, with green sepals and petals accentuating a narrow yet strikingly white lip. The elongated central projection adds an elegant touch, while the sheer size of the flower spear sets it apart as a remarkable specimen. On the other hand, Rhyncholaelia digbyana contributes its own charm, with wide, deeply fringed green lips, enhancing the overall allure of the hybrid.

Notably, the Rhynchodendrum Cabalgata en Verde inherits a unique blend of characteristics from its parents. While the Epidendrum influence dominates the flower's appearance, the Rhyncholaelia influence manifests in widened side lobes and a pronounced projection of the lip, reminiscent of the Epidendrum ciliare signature feature.

Cultivating this botanical marvel requires attention to detail and care. Here are some tips to ensure its optimal growth:

  1. Light: Provide bright, indirect light to mimic the orchid's natural habitat. Avoid direct sunlight, as it may scorch the leaves.

  2. Temperature: Maintain moderate temperatures, ideally between 65-75°F (18-24°C) during the day and slightly cooler at night. Adequate ventilation is essential to prevent stagnant air around the plant.

  3. Watering: Water your Rhynchodendrum Cabalgata en Verde regularly, allowing the potting medium to dry slightly between waterings. Use lukewarm water to avoid shocking the roots.

  4. Humidity: These orchids thrive in high humidity environments. Consider using a humidifier or placing a tray of water filled with pebbles beneath the plant to increase moisture levels.

  5. Fertilization: Feed your orchid with a balanced orchid fertilizer diluted to half strength every 2-3 weeks during the growing season. Reduce fertilization frequency during the dormant period.

  6. Repotting: Repot your Rhynchodendrum Cabalgata en Verde every 2-3 years or when the potting medium breaks down. Use a well-draining orchid mix to promote healthy root growth.

  7. Fragrance: While the plant may not exhibit fragrance during the day, both parent species are known to release scent after dusk. Keep an eye (or rather, a nose) out for any fragrant surprises once darkness falls.

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!
