    This is a nice hybrid between formosana x confusa ( Pleione x confusa is a natural hbr. between albiflora and forrestii)

    the flower is quite large and lightly scented

    Wonderful. How much do you chill them in the winter?

    It's one of my new bulbs, was too good to not put the photo, it should settle around 3-4C°=37-39 F°, the important thing is that no frosts ever.
    I hope to still be able to next year, I also recently purchase Pleione who are putting the flower,but also those of last year should flourish, so I am confident.

    I have found this other ai53.photobucket.com_albums_g53_novella_photos_Immagine037.jpg

    I use a mix of sphagnum moss, perlite and bark fine and medium, I put on the surface some moss green.
