Psychopsis Mendenhall ‘Hildos’ ( Butterfly Orchid) Long Lasting flowers

$155.00
Availability: 2 In Stock
A mericlone of one of the best Psychopsis ever produced with beautiful light green foliage covered in mahogany checks and spots. The flower spikes can get 18 inches to 2 feet tall and will produce a single large butterfly-like flower that lasts 3 weeks and will then fade while another bud is produced and will flower three weeks after the earlier flower. This can go on perpetually. New spikes are added annually as new growths form at the base of the plant. If a flower spike should accidentally break, another spike will form just below the break at the nearest node. Grow in medium light and water as the mix becomes nearly dry. This clone has received the highest award granted by the American Orchid Society, a First Class Certificate (FCC). This alone reflects how good this plant and its flowers really are.
