Lysudamuloa Red Jewel (Lycamerlycaste Geyser Gold x Angulocaste Red Jade}
This type of hybrid is not commonly seen in Puerto Rico. The plants that were for sale sold out pretty quickly. In my experience tropical Lycastes grow and bloom well in Puerto Rico. However the larger flowered Lycaste species and hybrids are only grown by a few growers in the areas mountainous areas of PR where the climate is cooler and humid. I It is a pleasant departure from the usual yellow color of the Lycastes that are commonly grown in PR. I will be paying close attention to see how these plants fare under the care of local hobbysts.
