Beautiful view Leslie! I'm not lucky with lawrenceana, she definetely wants warm temps to thrive.
Love the painting of Cat. maxima, I own several orchid paintings of the beginning of xx century and would like to show you my favourite one.

Yes keep them in warmest part of your growing area in winter, around 18C minimum.

That’s a really beautiful painting. Is it coccinea? Who is it by?

Lovely thing Leslie! Strong colours.
Apropos of this unusual species, Have you seen this semi alba that Steve Christofferson is offering at the moment? I would barely have recognised it as this species.

I did see this and loved it.

There is a little controversy regarding this one as such a strong lip color doesn’t exist in nature or in lawrenceana lines in Venezuela.

I am investigating this further from my contact with Steven.

Thanks Leslie. To me it hasn’t the look of a pure lawrenceana .

PS the lueddies are starting up. It’s exciting! Coerulea venosa has opened and ‘mariauxi‘ and ‘ splash labio solido’ are out of the sheaths.

Yes Leslie, it's coccinea.
I attach a picture where you can read the name of the artist.

Very nice but it is doubtful to me if it is straight lawrenceana. Throat is not right for lawrenceana.
