Habenaria Hampton 'Harbinger's Fire' (rhodocheila x roebelenii)

Plants are flowering size divisions of the ‘Harbinger's Fire’ cultivar in 2" rose pots. 

 

The ‘Harbinger’s Fire' cultivar is a select, flat cultivar. The labellum is dark orange with a hint of red overlay. The sepals are light cream-green and spread like the roebelenii parent.  I expect it will be awarded if I ever take it to judging. NOTE: Photpgraphs is of H. Hampton 'Harbinger' and not 'Harbinger's Fire'.  'Harbinger's Fire' has a bit more red in the labellum. 

 

Plants are deciduous and have a very distinct dormancy period. Plants will do well under filtered light similar to Phalaenopsis, but will multiply faster with brighter light. Plants prefer to be evenly moist while in active growth. When the leaves begin to yellow after flowering (September - November) stop watering. Only resume watering when a new shoot is seen in spring (April – July). The first watering after dormancy should come from below. This is done by soaking the pots in a small saucer of water.
