Easy Cultivation for Stunning Results: This fantastic hybrid is not only a feast for the eyes but also a joy to cultivate. The Fredclarkeara After Dark 'Black Pearl' is designed for ease of growth, making it suitable for both beginners and seasoned orchid enthusiasts. Active and continuously developing new growths, these awarded clones promise to flourish under optimal conditions.

Striking Cascading Blooms: In the right environment, these clones will reward you with beautiful cascading blooms that add a touch of drama to any space. The incredibly dark flower displays emit a spicy-sweet fragrance, creating a sensory experience that is truly enchanting.

Seasonal Beauty and Dormancy: The Fredclarkeara After Dark 'Black Pearl' showcases its charm by producing flowers during or after the foliage sheds in the fall to winter season. To ensure optimal blooming, provide bright light during the summer growing season. As the flowers begin to drop and pseudobulbs become bare, the plant enters dormancy. During this period, water sparingly and refrain from fertilizing until a new growth emerges and reaches about 5 inches in height the following spring.

Pro Tips for Cultivation:

  • During the summer growing season and fall blooming period, water frequently and fertilize often to support robust growth and blooming.
  • As the plant enters dormancy, reduce watering and avoid fertilizer until a new growth emerges in spring.
  • Place the orchid in bright light for the best flowering results.
  • With proper care, the Fredclarkeara After Dark 'Black Pearl' is not only easy to grow but a reliable bloomer.
