Orchid of the Week: Zygolum Louisendorf

I’ve mentioned previously that Zygopetalums are one of my favorite types of orchids. Well, I discovered a similar orchid in the December 2010 issue of Orchids magazine, called Zygolum. It’s a hybrid of Zygopetaum and Zygosepalum, and is apparently less susceuptible to black spots that are often found on Zygopetalum foliage (both of my own Zygos have these spots). For this post, I’m focusing on the variety “Zygolum Louisendorf.”

These orchids are just drop dead GORGEOUS.

I want one of these for my collection, like, now.

That’s all I’ve got to say about this one. Ta-ta-for-now…have a great weekend, everyone!

P.S. The Orchid Show: On Broadway starts TOMORROW at the New York Botanical Garden!! I can’t wait to go!!!
