In warm conditions I also would recommend hybrids.

They are heavy water users and shouldn't dry out. I'm not trying again because I couldn't water often enough. Fred Clarke's source in Australia spoke to our society a few years ago. He waters and fertilizes his plants every day of the year.

Heckyeah!

I'm in. Sounds like a perfect project for someone who grows in SH.

Camille, you've already got a big enough consensus from members to roll with it. I say let's do it! It should be your turn to pick by this point anyway.

Imma go shopping now so I'm ready...

Akerne Orchids seems to be the only one with hybrids, and species can be found at a handful of other vendors. Given your climate, you may want to go for the hybrid! Going to send you a PM, check your messages.

Well, it seems that usually the person who starts the projects makes the rules, so I say it's a Sarc project this time!

I've got my shopping list all ready for next weekend, and the 15% discount is going to be dangerous, I'll be tempted to buy extra to make up for the cheaper prices!

I'm totally in! good timing for me to learn to grow them along the way.
I have two of em so I'll be testing out one indoor underlight in a small greenhouse, since my indoor lighting itself is terrible. The other one will stay outside year round.

I'm in too! I've been wanting to try my hand with sarcochilus for awhile so this is perfect. I just ordered the peachy orange one from SVO:

Just got my sarcochilus from SVO, they were out of the peach one so they sent me two - the yellow one listed on their site and an unlisted one that both parents are deep red. They both have a couple fans and look very healthy with lots of healthy roots. I grow indoors on a shelf under a LED light so I think I’m going to need a bigger boat, er, shelf especially getting two rather than one! Currently have them next to my neofinetia that just rebloomed.

Got mine today!! I got some useful cultural info from the grower. In the winter they need night temps around 10-15C (50-60F) in order to have good flowering induction. If kept warmer than that at night usually there are far fewer blooms, or generally none at all. The hybrids he has can tolerate 30-35C (85-95F) well, as long as they are watered well.
