    Cattleya Maximum Lust (maxima x lueddemanniana)

    A lot of maxima came through on this, didn't it. Amazing that such a primary was only just registered. What is your overall opinion of it, terryros? Do you like it?

    Stanhopea reichenbachiana

    Beautiful pure white and hyacinth fragrance! Sounds wonderful. Hopefully in the future you will get multiple spikes and can enjoy them opening over the course of several weeks.

    Mormodia Jumbo World 'Kanazawa' HCC/AOS

    It think it depends largely on temperature. If temps are warm, I think a little water won't hurt. Cool temps and water, however, are a recipe for rot. Some plants are more susceptible than others, as well.

    A couple of cattleya percivalliana clones

    I agree that the white is my favorite but I would prefer the tube to be closed. Both are beautiful though. Earlier today I watched a video of Jerry Fischer of Orchids Limited taking us on a tour of his December blooming Cattleyas, with lovely percivalianas, quadricolors, trianaeis, and...
