Achimenes Rio Rita [hyb] Nut Orchid

Achimenes Rio Rita [hyb]
Stock Number: 20008
Availability: In Stock
Family: Gesneriaceae
Cultural Code: HP TGH what's this?

Semi-trailing "Nut Orchid" with compact habit topped with double rose-pink scalloped flowers which remain open longer than the single cultivars. An excellent Worley hybrid with dark deep green leaves -- tends to have a much shorter dormancy cycle than the other types, especially if grown in a lit garden. Nevertheless it does need a dormant winter period when it sheds its foliage for several months. During the dormant cycle we send pots of the tiny white tubers which will send up new growth late winter.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
