Rebecca Northen (Grace Dunn x rosea) is a great parent, with its 'Lemon Pledge furniture polish' fragrance and many pink frilly-lipped flowers. This is a small-growing plant that reaches specimen size quickly and has been used in many successful hybrids. Grow in medium light, water as the potting mix approaches dryness during flowering and growth period. The leaves will completely fall off either before or during flowering. After leaf drop, keep the potting mix drier and water only if the pseudobulbs shrivel. No fertilizer is required during the dormant winter season.
