Plant of the Month - May, 2017

hybrid (noezliana X sanguinea)

Synea Tan

Cochlioda hybrid (noezliana X sanguinea)

Synea Tan did it again! Her luminously pink Cochlioda hybrid (noezliana X sanguinea) with two branched inflorescences stole the show! She bought it from Ecuagenera in 2011 and it sure likes her treatment. She potted it in a mix of fine bark, Perlite, coconut chips, charcoal and chopped sphagnum moss. She waters it twice a week with a weak fertilizer solution, summers it out of doors on the north side of her house and overwinters it in the house under two LED light tubes. Great job with a plant reputed to be easy to kill!
