Origins: Hybrid created by Pam Koide

Bloom: Long, compound inflorescence with many pale red/salmon colored bracts and purple flowers.  This bloom can exceed 3 ft tall, it's quite impressive!

Light: Strong indirect or filtered light, some direct light okay during cooler months

Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 2 hours as necessary.  Be sure to thoroughly dry center and base of plant after soaking to avoid rotting

 

This is another signature hybrid from Pam Koide, and it's a real beast of a plant! It has a semi bulbous base and long semi-erect leaves that curve towards the tips.  The leaves are gray and lepidote and it's semi-caulescent so it can grow long/tall.  The bloom can exceed 3 feet from the leaf tips, making it one you can see from across the garden.  Because it is so heavy, it is best to grow in a pot of bark to support the weight
