Members in attendance at the May 14 KDOC meeting each walked away with a promising 2-year-old hybrid called “Rlc. Volcano Glory.”
The orchids were given to the club by Akatsuka Orchid Garden during the Around the Island Orchid Tour in 2012. The bus made a rest stop there, and since many members purchased orchids, they were awarded with a flask. Nancy Shibata was willing to pot and care for the orchids until they were big enough to pass on to members who went on the trip.
Created by Mr. Moriyasu Akatsuka, this particular cross was made from two award winning plants, Rlc. Volcano Star ‘Volcano Queen’ FCC/AOS x Rlc. Blanche Aisaka ‘Yuki’ FCC/AOS. Yours may be just as beautiful or even better.
More information on Rlc. Volcano Star can be found on the Akatsuka Orchid Garden website.
