Wilsonara Michoacan ‘Mariposa’ is in bloom again

IMG_2641.JPGI purchased this Wilsonara Michoacan ‘Mariposa’ from Tom Perlite at Golden Gate Orchids on April 27, 2015.  It immediately bloomed and the flowers lasted a long time.  It is now in bloom again, with six flowers.  I discovered a new growth on July 15, and a new spike on January 5, 2016.  The spike grew quickly, and had six buds, which were held for about a month before opening yesterday.

This plant has been in S/H for nearly a year, and the new growth, spike and blooms were accomplished in an S/H pot.  It is a success story for S/H for me, and “it is good evidence” that I can grow things in a cool/intermediate environment.
