This week we have added the Zygonisia Cynosure ‘Blue Bird’ image to several product at Orchids In Print. This orchid is a very reliable bloomer, with beautiful blue and white flowers.
Our climate is humid subtropical, and has temperatures from as low as 6 degrees Celsius at night in winter through to 36 degrees Celsius daytime in summer. Humidity is generally between 45% and 100% in summer, and up to 75% during winter.
I have it growing in a greenhouse with 50% shade cloth, partially under a tree. It generally blooms twice a year.
The Zygonisia orchid, is a cross between the Zygopetalum and Aganisia orchids
Zygonisia is a manmade genus of hybrids between Zygopetalum and Aganisia, apparently to create orchids that can grow in warmer conditions.
