Popped in a couple times over my hiatus...L. schmidtii was my choice. I'm hoping for sheaths on the two developing growths. I've been following my Sophronitis watering schedule for this one, with light levels on the upper side of the Cattleya range over the past 3-4 months. I've noticed much more robust root growth and the leaves have anthocyanin in more considerable amount now.

Here are photos of my plants from about a week ago.

Each has completed/nearly completed 1 new growth; the longipes has started two tiny new growths in the past month, and the endsfeldzii has started another one!

In the first photo (longipes), the largest new growth is left of center, with one of the newest growths emerging from its base - just to the right of that, the shriveled brown growth is a new growth it had been working on over the summer, but one day it had gone all yellow, and it swiftly went brown and dead. I think that's my fault - I'd put the plant back in the window with the new growths facing the glass the previous day, and it had been sunny, though far from the hottest day of the summer.

Second photo shows the 2nd tiny new growth on the longipes. This plant is growing lots of new roots along with the newest little growths.

This plant hasn't darkened at all in the sun, so perhaps it hasn't been getting quite enough. The endsfeldzii, on the other hand, has some nice reddish coloring on the edges of some of its leaves.

Third and fourth photos are the endsfeldzii - its biggest new growth is only visible as a pair of leaves emerging from the bark, the majority of it is buried!!

Since so much of the longipes is above the top of the pot, I've been looking around to find another slightly larger net pot I can set this one inside of, to give its lower roots more room and also so I can get some bark in better position around all the exposed upper roots and help them stay damp a bit longer.

I'm still watering them every day, though since nights are now dropping into the 60s in my apartment, they're still a bit moist in the morning (and because they should be moving into a "less rainy" period) I'm giving them a lighter morning soak.
