Description
 

Dracula lotax x sib, Plant blooms in the spring with a single 8 cm wide flower, but we find they are blooming most any time of the year due to domestic growing. These being offered are full sized plants, and they are blooming size.

These are very slow bloomers, meaning they can be in spike for a few months before finally blooming. It takes them a while, but rewarding :-)

DRACULA LOTAX SPIKES = A lotax spike will begin to look like a white root, same size, same area, until it's about 1/4"-1/2" long. At that point the spike will begin pointing upward and start turning a dark burgundy color with a whit tip. This spike will remain almost the size of a hair as it grows upward. When the spike tip gets close to the top of the folage it will begin expanding at the tip. The tip will begin getting fat, triangular in shape and eventually open. The lotax spikes do take a while to grow and bloom, sometimes up to a month or longer. Have patience, it's worth seeing their little smiling face :-)

5 of 5 Excited to get this Rare Orchid Plant August 1, 2020
Reviewer: RAY P from ST. CLOUD, FL United States  
Was very pleased with this rare plant. What makes the experience is the care that is taken to protect each plant prior to shipping.  Every plant is wrapped individually and taped.  Such care is shown for the shipment and is much appreciated.
