    Dale's posts inspired me to add this one to my collection in 2009. I like the crisp colors, the pleasant fragrance, and the perky profile. Flowers are long lasting, too.

    Gorgeous - one of my favourites. Mine is just waking up now...it stopped growing during the winter so I decided to water it less. How do you grow yours?

    It's from Andy, so it's mounted on one of his sticks. Daily water in summer, less when the temps are cooler. I do not "rest" it, though, beyond the usual decrease in water during winter. I grow it bright (Cattleya light) and warm. Fertilizer when I remember.

    Must be the 'perky profile', Joe.

    I'm glad you got one, Alexis. It's a great species.

    It's a wide spread specie that found in both low and high elevation. You can grow as warm as formosum or cool as infundibulum.

    Can't you grow it in your bedroom or kitchen? I am sure you don't want your home to be intermediate or cool... It would stunt your growth!

    I can't grow cool because I grow at home. In the winter when the heat is blasting it can get 90 F or slightly more in my bedroom for a few hours.
