Origins: Manmade hybrid

Bloom: Short, compound inflorescence with multiple bracts that blush red and produce purple flowers

Light: Strong indirect or filtered light

Ideal for: Indoors/Outdoors

Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak monthly to rehydrate up to 4 hours as necessary.  Be sure to thoroughly dry plant if submerged in water so water doesn't get trapped in the base

 

Awesome little hybrid with a bulbous base, wavy leaves, and a slight scurf towards the base.  Genetics of both parents are present, even in the bloom.  I have not been able to grow this plant very big, which may be some bulbosa genetics coming through, but also could be environmental as this cultivar would prefer a humid environment
