Galeopetalum Starburst 'Parkside' AM/AOS 2" NFS
Galeopetalum Starburst 'Parkside' AM/AOS
(Galeottia fimbriata X Z. Jumpin Jack)
A rather startling Zygopetalum hybrid registered in 2009. Flowers are almost 3" across 3-4 per upright stem and display the best attributes of both parents.
Our plants are 2" mericlones that will, if cared for properly, be ready for first blooms next season (~April- August) Grow these as you would Zygopetalums with cool-warm temperatures (55-80 Night to day), dappled or semi-bright light and moist roots. Add a liquid or water soluble fertilizer to the water twice a month; Zygopetalums and their hybrids tend to root heavily and should not be allowed to become cramped in their pots.
Our plants are likely to need repotting after the current growth matures; they are planted in New Zealand sphagnum moss and it makes an excellent substrate for Galeopetalums, Zygopetalums, etc.
