Pod Parent Flower
 
 
Culture Notes from Donor: Parent plant: Grown by a friend outdoors. Receives irrigation water every day during the summer, in otherwise desert-like habitat and no extra water given from October to April. Near full sun all day long. Highs in the 100°Fs in the summer, lows in the 0°Fs in the winter. Soil is mostly silty sand with very low amounts of organic material. Easy to grow as long as mix is well drained and light is available.
 
Comments: Parent plant: An extremely large cluster of pseudobulbs, each the size of a red potato. Very large plant.
