Acronia Safsax

(A. ruberrima x A. nossax)


Plant ID: 03214


Clonal Name: 'Free Spirit' (awarded as Pleurothallis Safsax)

Award: HCC/AOS of 79 points given on 1-17- 2004 at the Great Lakes Judging Center


Additional Information: This is a fun hybrid that was named for a play on words, but it is truly a wonderful improvement on it's parents. The large flower size, open flower form and floppy inflorescences come from P. ruberrima. P. nossax is actually quite pale in color, but the combination of the two resulted in a nice color. And look at that floriferousness!
