|Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter|
Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter is a hybrid in the genus Beallara
This Beallara was created by Milton Carpenter from Everglades Orchids, by using the famous Beallara Tahoma Glacier and crossing it to Miltonia Purple Queen. Is one of the most sucessful Beallaras (if number of propagated plants is counted). By the way: Miltonia Purple Queen is Miltonia spectabilis var moreliana x Miltonia russeliana. And if you look at Miltonia russeliana, you wouldn't believe it makes up for 25% of the genetic material of Beallara Peggy Ruth Carpenter.

Plant will flower when the new bulbs have formed. After flowering, give plants a slight dryout between waterings for 2 - 4 weeks, and increase watering once the new growth starts.
