Zygopetalum Big Red, 4/16

Zygopetalum Big Red, 4/16

Zygopetalums are usually heavily scented, I was delighted to find this one wasn’t.

Water enough to keep the roots from drying but don’t let it sit in water.

Moderate light, no direct sun, but bright indirect sun.

Zygon: means yoked petal
Native to South American rain forests about half way up the mountains.
