I purchased this Maclellanara Pagan Lovesong ‘Chocolate Thunder’ from Gold Country Orchids at their open house on November 18. I went to the open house this day to attend a lecture by Paph Paradise about Paphiopedalums, but noticed this plant back in a pile of plants in their second greenhouse. It is a large plant, clearly several years old. It has two distinct leads to its rhizome, and bunch of dead bulbs in between. One lead has a spike that is in bloom, and one lead is in spike. I will need to separate this into two plants, as it is growing out of the current pot in two directions, and I will do so when it has finished blooming. It currently sits on the table in the solarium.
It is planted in large bark, and has a date of 05/06/05 on the tag, so it is an old plant. It should do well in my environment.
