    Hi!

    This is a first-bloom seedling of Rhyncolaelia digbyana 'Laura' AM/AOS x 'Connor'. I purchased it a few years ago from Carter & Holmes. The NS is about 4-1/2 inches. Wish it were larger. Love the frilly lip! It's currently in a four-inch clay pot. I grow it near the ceiling in my greenhouse in the sunniest location possible. It gets watered once per week, twice in the Summer. I give it Osmocote fertilizer maybe once per year.

    I brought it into work to display at the front desk. It has caused a sensation, along with several requests for me to give it away to admiring fans. I guess I'll be placing an order for more seedlings somewhere.

    Best Regards,
    Nik von Ruden
