Schomburgkia rosea var. schultzei x Schomburgkia lueddemannii, this is a primary hybrid of two great Schomburgkia species!

Schomburgkia rosea v. schultzeiis a species from South America. The long-lasting waxy flowers are a rich red mahogany with curled edges and the lips are a bright fuchsia. The flowers have a citrus scent during the afternoon. Schomburgkia rosea v. schultzei is an orchid species identified by Schltr. in 1924. Found in southwestern Colombia on bare rocks at elevations around 1600 meters.

Medium sized, cool growing lithophyte with short, 6 to 6.8 [15 to 17 cm] long pseudobulbs carrying 2, apical, erect leaves that blooms in the late winter and early spring on an erect, elongate, many flowered inflorescence with the flowers congregated at the apex and with pink, elongate floral bracts. Flowers size: 2.4 to 4 inches

Schomburgkia lueddemannii is a large warm-growing species native to Costa Rica, Panama, and Colombia. The plant is robust and produces very tall spikes with a cloud of flowers at the top at maturity. Schomburgkia lueddemanni is an orchid species identified by Prill. in 1862. Found in Costa Rica, Panama, Colombia and Venezuela at elevations of sea level to 600 meters. Currently accepted name is Laelia lueddemannii

Large sized, hot to warm growing epiphyte with large, somewhat ancipitous, largest towards the apex pseudobulbs carrying 2, apical, lanceolate to elliptic, obtuse, coriaceous leaves that blooms on a terminal, long-pedunculate, to 30 [75 cm] long, several to many flowered inflorescence with linear to linear-lanceolate floral bractrs. 

This is a very impressive plant when mature and in flower!

In this primary hybrid, we expect to see very robust large plants that produce long-lasting waxy heads of flowers on tall, upright spikes. The frilled flowers are a glossy mahogany color with a cream colored lip with touches of yellow and pink.

This is a blooming size in a 5” clay pot about 1 to 2 years to bloom. Grown from Seed!
