1 bulb, 1 lead bare root division of Schomburgkia (Laelia) superbiens alba. This plant came from the same seed pod as 'Don Hubert Cross' CBM/AOS but has never been given a clonal name. It will need to be potted in a 6” pot or basket.
The flowers are pure crystalline-white with a splash of gold on the lip and are 6-8” across. The flower spikes start developing Nov-December and can be as long as 12 feet by the time the 8-15 flowers open in the early spring. As you can see in the pics, it is best grown by folks who have a lot of room! If you live someplace it doesn’t freeze, this plant grows great outdoors.
Care is similar to other Laelias: very bright-full sun, cool-warm temps, and lots of water in the spring-summer and very little water in the fall-winter.
My mother plant was the original plant (not a cutting) that was born in 1964! In 2020 we had to refurbish the greenhouse and as a result ended up dividing the plant. Prior to that, the plant has not been repotted since the 60's. There is a picture below of me in front of the plant. Check out the video of us tearing it apart!
