Origins: Created by Pam Koide

Bloom: Short, compound inflorescence producing multiple pink to red bracts and purple tubular flowers

Light: Strong indirect light, partial direct light okay

This hybrid is a great blend of two legendary species; it is very densely covered in trichomes like ehlersiana, and the leaves are long and wavy like caput.  Grows larger than your typical caput, with a showy bloom that blends the two species well.
