Welcome to the Irish Orchid Society

(pronounced vool-steek-ee-AH-ra)

Like the Burragearas mentioned earlier, these are inter-generic hybrid epiphytesA plant which grows perched upon another plant but does not derive its nourishment from it.. In the case of Vuylskekeara the breeding cocktail is a mix of the genera: Cochlioda x Miltonia x Odontoglossum. The cultivar “Cambria Plush” is a classic highly distinctive plant created in 1931 and is often seen in supermarkets today. It seems to continuously produce flower spikes and is undoubtedly beautiful and is more vigorous and easy to grow than the Burragearas.


Intermediate. Night temperatures approximately 12° to 14° C with a daytime rise of about 10° C.




Average during summer and reduced in winter.
