Dracula lotax x sib, 2" pots, just repotted 3/28, or 3" pots, 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 :-)

4 of 5 Dracula Lorax orchid April 27, 2023
Reviewer: sue from fairport, NY United States  
My Dracula Lorax arrived safely with no damage. I was surprised by how small it was.  There was no information in the box on how to take care of this plant or how to repot it and do something a little bit bigger. But I am very excited to have it and I can’t wait for it to grow big enough to flower! I appreciate the quick service And the excellent packaging

5 of 5 Amazing packing job and healthy little orchid February 18, 2023
Reviewer: sueblittle from Austin, TX United States  
I was so excited to get my Dracula lotax. I knew what to expect it to look like and that it would take time to bloom. But the post office misplaced my package and it took an extra five days to actually get it. I expected it to look very sad. I was delighted to find it was so well packaged and so healthy it survived with no apparent ill effects. I’d definitely buy from Seattle Orchid again.
