Did not notice the introductions thread, so I am repeating the first paragraph of a thread I started earlier.

I'm new here but have grown orchids fro some time. Started when I was 19 but had give it up during grad school. Grew a few intermittently in the 90s and early 2000s, and since retiring am getting into it as there is simply more time. The collection is small and is mixed genera (Paphs, Encyclias, Brassia, Ocidiums, Oncostele, Bassavola, a couple Yamamoto Dendrobiums, Epicyclia, some Dendrobium Ise hybrids and others. I mention these as I have bloomed all successfully and is relevant to the question of blooming the S. locusta. I grow them outdoors in summer and indoors in winter, most under lights, some in a south facing windows. Use RO water (a couple cups city water to a gallon of RO).
