A lady with class and an international background, that’s Cambria. With her whimsical flowers in bright colours she is the product of the cross-breeding of various species from all over the world. Those colourful genes explain her multicultural appearance: tiger prints, pouting lips, provocative spears and sometimes even three different flower shapes in one single flower. What also makes this lady an appealing housemate is that she often expands sideways. Yes, there are soberly styled specimens, but usually the stems with foliage spread left and right out of the pot.
Admittedly, Cambria can have such a massive kitsch factor that it is tempting to place the orchid in an eye-catching pot. But the orchid also combines very beautifully with sober, natural materials. That places even greater emphasis on the flowers.
