The tradition continues! I just received another order from Donato.
I often ask for one hybrid from each Seidel order of species orchids. This year, I ordered Lc Cypheri (L. purpurata
X C. forbesii aurea
) at the recommendation of L.C. Menezes in her recent book. I received a strong plant. I hope for the best!!
One of Alvim's prize Laelia purpurata
plants includes "Comendador Alvim Seidel". Do you know the significance of the "Comendador"? As I understand this word, it translates to "Commander" in English. I don't understand the context.
