Definitely avoid "neglected to buy" remorse... It is a rather spectacular species in a genus where most have colors that are rather "meh"

Orchids teach patience... Those Cattleya seedlings grow fast compared to some... get a Dendrobium speciosum seedling of the same size and it may be 10 years or more... orchids don't do anything fast....

Ditto on the fried eggs... Love it.

For square pseudobulbs, check out Den. tetragonum.

Yeah, it tends to sent its spikes straight out. I use a little wire stake to support it, fearing that it could break of its own weight when I move it. But it's pretty strong.

Just sprinkle it on and leave it. If nothing else, it tends to help dry up the area. At best, will maybe stop the progression of rot, but it's not a cure. The crown is the growing point, once it...

Cinnamon is a good (and natural) fungicide. You don't want that on the roots either, but a little sprinkled in the crown might help, and won't do harm. Generally, once the crown is gone, it's gone...

Yikes! Both the damage to plants and the energy bill! Yes, I think that's heat damage on the Angraecum... if the ambient temperature was 95 deg F, the heater was putting out much more, and the...

Now I see the new growths... yes, keikis. Hopefully they will grow big enough to have roots before the mother plant and spike give up the ghost.

I agree with Dollythehun with regard to peroxide. It isn't going to cure the crown that is already gone, and if it gets on roots it will damage them. (While none of the roots are wonderful, you need...

I don't dry them out at all. But once they start putting out new growth, watering can certainly start. They don't have the growth pattern of Catasetinae where you have to hold back on watering.

I think that the original plant is done, but hopefully it has enough strength left to nourish the keikis (actually, basal growths) until they are big enough to take over. I'd...
