All are very attractive. But the C. labiata is my favorite. Excellent shape on that one, and the colors are superb. I also am fond of rabbits--which, in turn, are very fond of my roses.

Thank you, Roberta. I'm not really sure what I did. I did leave them outside for as long as possible, even allowing them to experience night temperatures in the mid to high 30's. I also stopped...

Excellent shape! And yes, I agree that your photos are also quite good and do the species justice.

Those are excellent colors. This is one of those cattleya species that I'm sort of ambivalent about. I really like the colors of almost everyone that I've seen. But the flower shape (not yours, but...

Spikes on Standard Cymbidiums (or, never say never)

The Midwest is not what you would call an ideal environment to grow standard cymbidiums--or maybe to grow, but not to flower. So I'm quite proud to have done something correct--even if only...

Yes, you are. What you call "cool" is what I call "spring." In a few months from now I'll envy you, however.

The plants will be just fine with that low. C. walkeriana can handle even lower than that if kept relatively dry. Regarding the flowers, however, I'd agree with Keysguy. Your veranda might be a...

I do find all of the catasetinae family to be interesting. I just can't keep the sunroom warm enough for many of them during the winter. I think that pileatum is one of the true "heat lovers," which...

That's an interesting bloom. How long did the flowers last (or are they still in good shape)?

I don't know if this is "normal" wallkeriana behavior, but this plant is a robust grower and initiates new roots on a fairly regularly basis throughout the year, including during the dormant season,...

Very good. I think it's got quite a bit of Cattleya dowiana in its background, which should indicate (in theory) that the blooms should have some scent to them.

Cattleya walkeriana time for a repot

I've been putting this off for a number of years, but it's probably time for a repot of the overgrown weed--pardon me, I mean Cattleya walkeriana. It's got six active leads with buds, but after this...

You're right. Philodendron martianum does bear a superficial resemblance to a cattleya, especially on the younger plants. And I hadn't heard of this species either until a local grower told me about...

Well, hopefully, given enough time (orchids not being, in general, the quickest to respond to any new treatment or technique), that top 3-foot piece will cooperate. Best of luck!

That lip is outstanding. And it looks like the Cattleya dorminiana parent somewhat tamed the giant C. guttata growth habit in this cross. Are the flowers fragrant?
