A variety of colour combinations can arise out of the Kiwi Susan. Expect purples, reds and anything in between. We are looking for a nice filled-in flower with the typical Zygopetalum perfume. Our expectations are 4-6 blooms per stem and 2 or 3 stems per growth. Flowers are approximately 6-8cm across.
Grown much like Cymbidiums, they prefer cool to intermediate conditions and and dappled sunlight. They are frost sensitive, so will require protection in colder climes.
The photo that shows on each available variant is indicative of the size plant that you will receive. Size B plants can be expected to reach flowering size in 3-4 years; Size B+ plants in 2-3 years; Size C plants in 6-18 months (depending on the flowering season and time of purchase). Please check carefully when selecting options to avoid “size surprise”.
B+ sized plants are generally growing in a 7cm pot however may also be in a 5cm pot - the plant size is equivalent. Repotting from the 5cm pot will be required in the spring.
