Any idea of which Pleione can be this one, with semi flat pseudobulbs, from Gardenorchid ( so I suppose it comes from Anthura) ?

Thanks in advance

Johan - that's a really deep yellow forrestii you have there. Beautiful. Is that a true representation or has the camera or lighting enriched it? My forrestii have always been much paler. Incidentally, I find forrestii to be very difficult to grow from year to year. I have some new stock (again!) - 6 pseudobulbs in all - which I am growing in 6cm depth live moss on a bark/moss/perlite substrate in a 30cm pond basket. The photos elsewhere on SRGC showing forrestii growing wild in China on a rock face in moss has inspired me to try again. The most I ever had was about 8-10 growing and flowering - also in moss. I found that a fluctuation in temperature (warming) seemed to cause - I think - rapid flower wilting and drop. And as I said I couldn't keep the stock going and within 4 years I hadn't one left. I'm aiming for better temperature control this time. Does anyone have any opinions?  ???

Very nice forrestii, love the bold bloodred marks. That is true representation of he colour, some are pale and some have an almost neon yellow colour.

Any idea of which Pleione can be this one, with semi flat pseudobulbs, from Gardenorchid ( so I suppose it comes from Anthura) ?

I don't know Gian. Anthura is a wholesaler that doesn't sell to the public, only to retailers.

I think it may be Pleione formosana v. alba, but that's a guess.

It is quite impossible to identify a pleione from the bulb only. Even if the bulb looks as distinctive as, say, P. maculata, it cannot be ruled out that the plant may be a hybrid.

My few pleione bulbs are in a wooden box with sand in the bottom for drainage. This has a layer of fibre on top. The bulbs are inserted up to half way. The whole planting layer is covered with three layers of fleece for the winter. Shoots are visible on some bulbs. It was down to 20F two nights ago but this does not seem to have affected the bulbs so far. My cyprepediums are in the garden planted in ordinary garden soil, neutral, and are covered with a layer of leaves.

I know it's a little early to mention maculata  ;) but ...

I've been reading around and get the impression that it has no real 'rest period'. Is this correct?

The reason I ask is that I am about to clean out my fish tank (sorry terrarium) and I was thinking that maculata might be OK in there, year round. The idea was to make it more 'orchidy' as it is currently overflowing with CP's. I already have a few Orchids in there that will be growing mounted on branches and such (think display case rather than incubator) and was looking for new candidates. Would maculata be one?

Pretty one. I can see humilis and yunnanensis genes.
I could be wrong, a remake of Pleione Lucey?

Nova, it can be. But it is really disappointing that Gardenorchid/Anthura sell their Pleiones without any name :-(

That's the true colour.
I have the more paler Pleione forrestii too.
