Lycaste campbellii Male
Default Lycaste campbellii

One of the smallest Lycaste species. Plant needs a dry rest after it drops itís leavesótheoretically in the autumnóbut my plantís growth/dormancy cycles donít seem to correspond to actual seasons. It is supposedly fragrant but I have not detected any scent. The plant grows near sea level so it is a hot/warm grower but doesnít seem to mind intermediate temps in winter. I think I could get a better flower count if I could give it brighter light.
I grow it under t5 light fixtures.

Nice! A Lycaste that takes minimal space is a special treat.
