Hi Angela, No great insight here. I grow it on the bright side, which I credit with its flowering on its single-fan division. It now has a new growth started. Best of luck!Kate, this is a splendid flower! I have Bel Croute (Sorcerer's Apprentice 4n x
caudatum v. sanderae) and am have some trouble growing it properly. Any
specific recommendations on culture.
Thanks Paul. I gotta admit I have to pinch myself sometimes. Particularly now, with Covid madness and stay-at-home orders, both I and my orchids have enjoyed having each other around. Best, KateThat's a beauty, Kate. I dream of moving to HI and growing my orchids out in the yard...
I personally can’t lift it, as much because of girth as weight, but my husband can. We have a stand that we bungee into the rear of my SUV (stand pic below) and then we try to position/drape the inflorescences so we are not putting weight on them. We lose quite a few flowers, but if a particular inflorescence looks bad when we “arrive”, we just cut it. Not perfect, but it works. Our big old Bulb medusae was even harder. I did not even want to take it in last year because I thought it was a day past its prime (it was), but Ian insisted. We left a trail of white flowers on the carpet in the back of the car and still got a CCE. That one is heavy.How do you even start to physically move this for judging.
