    Here is my Lycaste skinneri. It was a gift given to me. Im kinda concerned that it flowered now in summer, and that the flower is inside this years new growth. I grow it in intermediate temperatures, max. 85F, at night, 65 F. In December it flowered normal.

    Welcome to the forum. I find my Lycaste skinneri can bloom at odd times of the year and have no adverse effect. I have 2 in flower now. But I have never seen the flower coming out of the new growth as they normally come from the base of the pseudobulb. I don't know that there is much that I would do but wait and see what happens with the flower.

    I have something of the same problem. But it has gotten worse and I'm even making lycaste hybrids!

    For the present time, I don't have an answer. Judging by the number of people who ask me, they aren't easy to find. I am line breeding L skinneri alba, but it is a slow process. If you want to discuss this further, message me through the "Conversations".
