Adaglossum Mandarin is a Ada and Rhynchostele hybrid


This hybrid is an interesting example of using Ada aurantiaca to produce an orange flowering Oncidiinae hybrid. Similar results of successful use of Ada aurantiaca are Brassadas like Brassada Orange Delight, Brassada Mem Bert Field or Brassada Mivada. Adaglossum Mandarin bears many orange flowers with dark spots on the sepals and petals, and a more Rhynchostele bictoniensis-like labellum.

This hybrid has - at least in Europe - been mass propagated and is thus relatively widespread.


Keep in partial shade. Keep plant cool to intermediate, and keep medium moist with small drying periods (water about once a week). Plant can be potted in medium fir bark. Plant blooms around autumn and winter. Plant can be grown indoors
