Orchid Hybrid Aliceara Tahoma Glacier


Aliceara Tahoma Glacier (synonym: Belleara Tahoma Glacier) is an epiphytic growing, intergeneric orchid hybrid, a crossing between the hybrids Bratonia Cartagena (seed parent) and Oncidium Alaskan Sunset (pollen parent).

The showy orchid hybrid has been developed by the Hawaiian orchid breeder W.W.G.Moir and has been registered with the Royal Horticultural Society in the year 1970 by Beall, an orchid nursery in Auburn, Washington, USA. The stunning flowers of Aliceara Tahoma Glacier get a size of about 7 cm in diameter. Flowering period: Winter - Spring. The tropical orchid hybrid requires intermediate - warm temperatures and a location in full sun - partial shade. Plants should be grown in a well-drained potting medium and shouldn`t be overwatered to avoid root rot.

Aliceara (abbreviated Alcra.) is the nothogenus (hybrid genus) for intergeneric hybrids between the orchid genera Brassia, Miltonia and Oncidium, whilst Beallara (abbreviated Blla.) is the nothogenus for intergeneric hybrids of Brassia, Miltonia, Cochlioda and Odontoglossum.
