    Oh, this is stunning.
    I saw that you have them in flask, please let us know when you have seedlings to sell/trade!

    I agree!
    Yes I have them in flasks and making even more this year. I want a good stock of them. I will definitely do trades and sell. It's one orchid I won't mind having to many of, plus they are small.

    A great species. Culture is the same as monophylla? My monophylla seedling is in spike, hoping for flowers later this spring.

    Nice, looking forward to pics! The culture is the same but hexaptera can be harder. I can move around monophylla to different spots in the greenhouse and still grow it well, wheres hexaptera if moved will start to lose leaves and have baby freak out even if the grow area is almost identical and just a little less air flow and lower light, it will hate life. Mine likes it very bright with lots of air flow. So if you find a good spot keep it in that spot. I've found monophylla does not care.

    Cattleya light. In front of the swamp cooler and daily watering.

    My observations on the two species are a bit opposite as yours! I have had some hexaptera seedlings that never really grew out of flask, then slowly died. My hexaptera on the other hand seem quite difficult to kill, being grown either intermediate-warm & bright, or cooler and very shady!

    Although your hexapteras are well in advance on my monophylla, I'd still love to get some pollen of your to make an hybrid here. :)

    Ah yes, fussy baby syndrome. I have some plants like that. I really wish they wouldn't

    Hmm, either way I'd like to give hexaptera a shot if I ever get my hands on one.

    That is interesting. My flask of monophylla all made it out of flask, I have not lost one and some are in spike right now.

    I'll have to see how many of my plants flower this year and let you know. I have 6 flasks of them growing and would like to make more seed pods.

    By the looks of their growth, I'll be deflasking hexaptera by the end of this year. Fingers crossed no complications.

    Oups I realize I made a mistake in my comment on both species. hexaptera is the tricky one for me, and indeed, monophylla is ridiculously easy in comparision!

    No worries, I thought we talked before about it. :) I was confused haha. I'll see what I can do about the pollen.
