Default Blc. Guess What SVO AM/AOS x Pot. Mem. Marcia Dell ‘Good Luck Gold’

SVO 6979 Picked this up back in early April. It put on 2 big growths with sheaths by June which have sat blind since. Was worried that they may not produce but had hope as I had read they can go some time until buds form. 4 months later and getting rapid growth on one of them and looks like the second sheath is also starting to fill. The plant now has another large growth with another coming in. Looks like it may be a constant bloomer if the trend continues. This sheath has 6 buds erupting and should produce very nice light orange flowers. Super excited for this plant!

What a nice, brightly colored flower!

I bought a variety of SVO crosses this spring, too. Just one has bloomed so far. Still waiting to see with the others.

One more bud left to open on this spike. The second spike also has 6 buds, hopefully they’ll all open with the first set still on but not sure how long these will last. Flowers are like 3-3.5” across.
