Project 2017: Rupicolous Laelias Male

Camille, look up Hoffmannseggella, this a genus that the rupiculous lealia where put in based on where they grew/what they grew on, rather than actual plant structure and morphology. There are about 40 lealia that where listed under Hoffmannseggella, which are now back under lealia, which, I believe now is under cattleya

To add to this: don't forget about IOSPE (internet orchid species photo encyclopaedia) it is a good reference for cultural and general information on all types of species of orchids

We have had this one for a few years now, has been a good proformer. Blooms in spring, March-April, for us. Has not been to picky as to environment, and conditions. High light, high temps, high humidity. Is a real trooper.

It has kept the flower form and style of cattleya (lealia) cinnabarina. Photo not the best to show form. But the color is very vivid red with an orange under petal, very stunning. Good choice, welcome to to project, best of luck with both choices
Thanks so much. It seems funny that the shape has held on like it has. But I sure did think it looked like it had something like that in it. It sure is red. So if I can get dear hubby to help me down load pictures I will post. This computer has been acting up as of late.

Default Update

Hope everyone that has and is being effected by all the hurricanes, earthquakes, and crazy weather is safe and out of harms way. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all.

It has been six weeks since we last updated and things are progressing well. The L. crispata (I still call it flava) ( photo 1) has grown a sheath on both new growths and is matureing wonderfully. Hopeful that one will give us blooms this year in spring. The L. gloedeniana (photo 2) has grown two new leaf buds, bringing the total to threel new leaves this year, hopefully. In photo 2 you can see the two new leaf buds starting to grow. The older new leaf can be seen left of the twisty tie. It seems to to be maturing will too, but it doesn’t look like a bloom this year (no sheath yet). Sorry for the side ways photos, sometimes it puts them in right, sometimes sideways, you never know.

Default What's a rupicolous orchid?

L. milleri
L. mixta
L. lundii
L. harpophylla
L. flava
L. xanthina
I am not an authority, so I hesitate to comment here. I found a paper which lists lots of the orchids which I have heard referred to as rupicolous, plus a lot more, under the category C. parviflorae. See the key on p77 and the list on page 80 in the link below. I think that these were also proposed as genus Hoffmannseggella. I don't know what the current thinking is on these classifications. I think Andy's sells all of the plants on your list as rupics.

Plants mostly rupicolous or terrestrial with cylindrical or subcylindrical pseudobulbs or epiphytic plants with long, slender pseudobulbs
and flowers generally less that 6 cm: series Parviflorae

Update on my L.lucasiana 'Exotic Orchids' x self (C. longipes). It is on a Kool-log. I have a lot of new root growth.
