Chris I don't know how you can stand these walkerianas...you should box it up and get it out of your collection immediately. I have a special case for disposing of walkers, and I would be happy to dispose of it humanely for you :rollhappy:

Very nice. I love them yet find them a effort to grow. Mine are in clay pots with expanded clay pellets. Maybe I need to mount mine. How often do they need to be watered if mounted? Every day like my vandas?

Eric: This cultivar is extremely fragrant.

Ron: LOL. My bifoliates are the only catt species that are coming with me to Texas no matter what, hell or high water.

Bob: All my walkerianas are mounted, growing extremely bright (direct sunlight from 10 AM to early afternoon), and get drenched every morning with the garden hose (unless the daytime high temp will be below 65). Fertilized daily with at about 200 ppm when in active growth.
