    This is a pretty easy to grow Lycaste hybrid. It is a cross of Lycaste (Kurt Servos x brevispatha). I gave it a semi dry rest this winter by watering lightly every 7-10 days without fertilizer. Although I have not had this problem with this hybrid, Lycastes are prone to rot on new growth. So keeping water off of the new growth is very important.

    I am still learning how to best grow Lycastes. So any advice is welcomed.

    On second viewing, I think the petals look like silk.

    Thanks all. The blooming is particularly nice.

    I wish lycastes were more easily available. I keep my eye out for them. Now I have to continue to learn how to grow them.
