    Greetings From DC

    Welcome from Cambridge Uk. Lots of knowledgeable people here who are past the point of no return vis a vis orchids! Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s a good way to kill fewer plants, David

    Paph druryi

    Lovely! I’ve read on this forum that they do well if treated more like a cattleya and grown in a free draining mix with lots of light and allowed to dry between waterings. Not sure how true this is, David

    Was the developing bud sprayed at any time? I would wait to send what the second flower looks like. Is this the first time this plant has flowered?

    The International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants

    Southernbelle, the issue of polypoids in meristem culture is interesting. I remember in one of the cattleya forum talks on YouTube, one of the speakers spent time looking for them in populations produced from tissue culture. He looked for plants that were slower growing and smaller than their...

    Cattleya percivaliana fm. semi-concolor ‘Corona’

    Of course! I was looking at one this morning on Helmar’s list. I lost my percivalliana ‘summit’ to rot earlier this year, it was the first species to succumb to rot. I have a small percivalliana alba ‘Oro blanco’ in low bud so I still have one! But I only have room for so many catts and there...
