Pleione Orinoco 'Gemini'

11th May 2013

P. Tongariro x P. Eiger. Grex raised by Stephen James and registered in 1992.
A clone that frequently produces two flowers on each stem (most Pleione will sometimes produce two flowers on a stem from large pseudobulbs but this clone does it fairly reliably).
Mid pink flowers with a mid pink lip, heavily marked with red spots and lines. I have seen more than one plant at shows bearing this name, but I think this is the real thing.
