Tolumnia Pink Panther #159

This delicate beauty is blooming in a 1.5″ (3.5 cm) pot. Easy to grow, this hybrid can flower twice a year and has a pleasant floral scent during the day. Its cute 1″ (2.5 cm) flowers are an intense, saturated burgundy that is challenging to photograph. It is an interesting orchid because the cross as a wide variation of flower patterns. The flower markings on the skirt can range from a uniform light pink, a deep purple, a sprinkling of fine spots, or large blotches or round dots. One single plant may even have blooms carrying several of these variations all at once. What else would you want from a tiny orchid?
