    Lycaste Abou Sunset ‘Goodstuff’ AM/AOS (Chita Sunset x Alan Saltzman)

Decideous vs non-decideous is the main determinant for issues like dry rest or not. I don’t heat my GH space so low temps sometimes down to 45 F. Good air movement is a good...

    Rats come in out of the rain

    Just wait till the Nutria move further north. 15-20 lb (7-10 kg) rat-rodent the size of Racoons…The good news is they are vegetarian. The bad news is they are vegetarian.

    Rats come in out of the rain

    Ahhh. Yes I’ve used Spag often for “rescue “ situations but in this case I’ll just let this Pbulb go. It’s a big plant and I’ve treated the wound.

    Rats come in out of the rain

    Lc. Sun Catcher ‘Octoberfest’ (C. Dubiosa x C. Edward van Belle)

    Yes indeed. Raymond Burr/Sea God made many very interesting hybrids, often it seems with an eye to unusual color pallet. I have a few and they all seem pretty intense. The whole Sea God story in quite interesting.

    Are there mini/compact white Cattleya hybrids?

    You are right Kathy It’s not white. Part of my sentence got clipped. I was trying to point to Fred’s breeding efforts. If anyone can make mini white it might be him (or Alan). Sorry Tyrone for my poorly worded post.
