    A few recent bloomers, catasetinae

    Yes, I’m starting to think the cupped presentation is inherent in the cross unfortunately. It may breed out down the line. Otherwise the segments and colors are great, not to mention scent!

    Try more fertilizer! Lots and lots of fertilizer. Maybe add Osmocote pellets to the media.

    A few recent bloomers, catasetinae

    It’s been awhile, many spikes on the way, figured I’d share these. Fdk. Frank Smith ‘SVO’ FCC/AOS x Ctsm John C. Burchett ‘Ursa Major’ FCC/AOS. These flowers have over a 3” natural spread! A future winner for sure. The plant itself is huge. Mormodes revoluta, a second cultivar from...

    Catamodes Dragon’s Glade

    Haven’t posted in a while. Not much blooming lately. Here’s a nice one (Catamodes Dragon’s Tail x Ctsm. Orchidglade)

    Catasetinae

    Do not repot until dormancy. Just cut back on water a bit until then.

    Catasetinae

    I have to agree, they’ve been too wet for too long, and most likely too early. Do not water until the roots hit the bottom of the pot! I’d say cut down on water now, and they could all use a fresh mix (probably wait til dormancy). And with your heavy hand, I’d say maybe go with straight bark, or...

    Best way to lose weight ?

    I’ve got a good one. I’m working outside in the sun. The heat index most days is 100-115F. It really curbs the appetite. Down 8 lbs so far this summer (176-168).

    Phalaenopsis bellina

    Ok I’m a little late on this discussion, sorry, I’m guessing bellina likes high temps? Like would 100F (37C) be acceptable in summer?

    Awesome. Heat tolerant?

    Pics from the SVO open house

    I know I was just giving you a hard time... Very envious! I’d love to make it out to SVO one day.

    First catasetums of the season

    Absolutely. There’s almost no time in there where I don’t at least have a spike growing. The last of last year’s blooms faded about mid March. The down side is the flowers with triggers don’t last long as it takes a whole lot of energy for the mechanism to work. So with catasetums themselves the...

    First catasetums of the season

    Yes, some species start growing spikes as the new growth develops, then sporadically throughout the season. They can bloom 4 times in one year off the same pseudobulb

    Is Orchid Origins still in business?

    I haven’t received flasks back from him yet. I’ll be getting 7 back in July. I know Marilyn LeDoux of Windy Hill sends her pods there and has received quite a few back. She’s the one who recommended him to me
