Brassia "Waiomao Spotless" and Brassia Rex "Sakata"
These two Brassias bloomed at the same time but are different in various ways. In contrast to "Waiomao spotless', which for me is a slow and deliberate grower, Brassia Rex 'Sakata' is a veritable weed that grows well with minimal care and can gallop across pots and baskets because its vigorous growth habits. Both hybrids are well worth growing, although my favorite is 'Waiomao' because of its larger flowers and elegant presentation of the inflorescence. Both are fragrant.
