Hello, everyone. I live in San Francisco, and I only grow species Cattleyas. While I have been steeped in orchid and other plants growing for many years, I have decided to focus on Cattleya species exclusively. I have purchased many plants this year, with a focus on C. maxima, C. violacea, C. eldorado var Concolor, C. tigrina, and C. percivalliana var 'Ondine'. I have numerous of these, as well as a variety of others that I am trying out and I would welcome suggestions for dry rest periods, day/night length, humidity, fertilizer schedules, etc. I have a pretty good handle on all of the above requirements but am always open to hearing more from others who have found specific success with particulars that might be useful to me. Thanks to everybody who reads this and responds, and Happy Holidays. C.G.
