Hi Lars and Eric,
I didn't think I would be joining in the x Lagenaria / x Confirmation discussion but whilst waiting for my first 'P.maculata' to flower I watched with interest as the flower bud slowly changed from white to pink and opened to reveal not so much a swan as a flamingo!!!! So guys do ya think this is x Lagenaria or X Confirmation. The purchase source was European.

Hi Chris

Although this does look nice ,I would say this was a clone of Praecox .

Chris,
I must agree with Eric. It's a pure P. praecox. I think the name of hybrid P. 'Flamingo' hasn't registered so far.

Taa Eric and Karel_t,
Sorry  karel_t, 'Flamimgo' was my attempt at a joke!
So now I have praecox, super, is the 'warty' pseudobulb typical of praecox?
Cheers
Chris

Hi Chris

Yes  the "warty" pseudobulb is typical .They can come as either very squat bulbs, which I have had up to 55mm in dia, or as very long bulbs of up to 80mm, but only about 30mm in dia.

My first Autumn flowering is a pale flowered clone of Praecox.
This is the clone that makes the very large squat pseudobulbs.

LOL, Eric, is this not an obsession gone to far?
Made of clay? New cultivars Pleione 'Hydroleca' and Pleione 'Seramis'? ROFL
Seriously I looked at these too on ebay, are they realistic close up?

Hi Chris

They are very realistic close up and I think it would be difficult to improve on them very much. :) :) :)
They are easy to keep but difficult to increase. ;) ;) ;) unless you pay another visit to ebay of course.
I am very pleased with them and would certainly recommend them.
