Dracula vampira 'Shadow' AM/AOS x Dracula cordobae 'White Heart' AM/AOS. Well-established blooming size plants in 3" net pots.
Most flower spikes produce 4-7 flowers sequentially. The flowers are large, 6" from tip to tail. These are divisions of several plants from the same seed pod so they are all similar but there is some variation in color pattern, shape, and size. The fungus-like lip is hinged and moves in the slightest breeze. I haven't seen one that I didn't like!
These plants are wonderful to own if you can give them what they want. Dracula culture is simple; cool, moist, and shady. Minimum low temp of 46° F and a high of around 85°. Anything over 80°, keep the plant really wet. We like to water them morning and evening at least a couple of times a week in the summer. Folks with greenhouses that have swamp coolers grow them directly in front of the cooler. We give our plants lots of light in the winter and lots of shade in the summer.
With very few exceptions, these plants flower out of the side or bottom of the basket. Regardless of how the spike emerges, we grow all the plants of this genus in net pots.
