    I got this last Oct. and I fully expected it to be dead now. The guy from Ecuagenera told me that the cross allows it to grow more intermediate and he said to put it in a tub of water up to about one eighth inch up the side of the pot. It evaporates quite a bit. Every seven days I fill the water back up to that level and happily for me it is still alive and has three flowers.

    I have it in the corner of a open light stand where it gets the least amount of light I can give it in the stand. It is a four tube fixture so it is probably still a fair amount of light. I have down as 'light to moderate shade". How I came to that conclusion, I couldn't tell you. I think the cross with D. glomeratum makes a world of difference. I don't want to convert a wine fridge even if I knew how although it might be kind of handy.

    The wine fridge is the only way I could keep mine alive and thriving. It was the idea that Jay Norris of RavenVision that inspired me. Here it it with the current cuthbersoniis in bloom/bud.

    Looks good. This cross has been registered as by Mountain Orchids as Mtn's Butterfly Kisses.

    THanks for sharing. Doctor Leslie, that is a great way to grow intermediate/cool orchids indoors.
