PlantPrimeurs get during the first weeks of their introduction extra attention when auctioned. Also Wilco Verhoeven from Kwekerij ‘t Nieuw Bos in Nieuwaal, Netherlands notes that Black Jack is supplied by other growers in Netherlands. “We applied however for a so-called FloraHolland product-code and we grow this Phalaenopsis in relatively large quantities. It will be year-round available.”
Black Jack is described as a dark purple almost black orchid. “This phalaenopsis has very many flowers and a multitude of stems that also are almost black in colour.
