Formerly known as S. sp. "Florianopolis", this plant has quickly become a favorite of growers and hybridizers. The plant is easy to grow and propagate and is not hard to bloom but seems to need slightly lower temperatures to set buds.

Thanks everyone! :)

They are very easy to start from seed and it seems as though the two pods are going to make it...
