I acquired this Odontoglossom Vanillie x Nobile from Bob Hamilton on my visit to his greenhouse on May 7th. It is a seedling plant in its first bloom, with three pseudobulbs, and five beautifully-white flowers on a foot-long spike. It is in a three-inch pot, planted in a bark/lava-rock mix.
Odontoglossum nobile, the Grand Odontoglossum, is a species of orchid from Columbia, growing at the 2400m (7000 ft.) level. It grows cool-intermediate, and needs a 15 degree drop in temperature to flower well. It will be a challenge for my environment, as its needs are right at the boundaries of what I can provide.
I can’t find a reference to Odontoglossom Vanillie, but will keep looking.
But a beautiful plant.
