Default Myv. Arubaís Spotted Beauty

Myrmecavola Aruba's Spotted Beauty, first bloom seedling. I like Brassavola hybrids. I like Schomburgkia hybrids. I like primary hybrids. This hybrid hits all three. This is a cross between Brassavola nodosa and Myrmecophila albopurpurea that I have had since 2017, from H&R nursery, when it was in a little 2Ē pot. It probably could have bloomed last year (I had a few empty sheaths) but I had been a vigorous grower, so no real complaints. This year, I put it in full sun where it is baked from about 10am until 5pm in southwestern exposure. That makes it one of my more sun tolerant orchids and it also handles my temps when they soar well into the 100įs F.

Itís extremely fragrant in the morning and smells much more pleasant (to me, at least) than the B. nodosa, very floral and sweet. I havenít checked to see if itís night fragrant. Eventually this should have a much higher flower count per stem.

I really do like the way the pattern shows up. The closer the flower structures get to the center the more purple spots are on the inside. The further away, the more purple spots are on the back side

Thank you This thing didnít really do much until I put it on a mount. I just tied the root ball to the wood and it was pretty secure within a month and started growing in multiple directions. I didnít take a picture from when I first mounted it in May 2018, but this was taken in October Ď18, so you can see how much progress itís made in under a year
