This thread seems to slowed down to a stop in June. Guess everyone is clear on decidious. <grin>
I haven't gone back to see if this one has been mentioned. At the risk of being redundant...Fredclarkeara After Dark is one that must be carefully not watered. By that I mean it must still be monitored. If it is too dry it will tell you by wrinkling on the surface of the pseudobulb or worse. When you pay $100 for a seedling, you don't want to forget it too long. Then when the next bulb begins to merge slowly increase water but only as much as it has leaves. There is the crux of the matter. A plant without leaves can not transpire or use the water. Wait for leaves, water by drops til then.
Isn't it great having a hobby where there is little chance of learning everything?

Hi all, first time here. My Dend. hercoglossum and moniliforme seem to need a rest too. So do I, lol.

Well. it's that time of year again
The time when I start thinking about what needs to be moved around in the orchid room for their rest period.
I keep telling myself I'm going to come up with a great system to make it an easier task but then life gets in the way (or I get lazy? ) but it never gets done

Any ideas?

Well, I must admit, I approach the winter far more calmly this year. I've managed to rid my phals of the Mealybugs, but I remain wary, and look at them carefully averyday!

I have another question, although this may not be the right place. I have a cattleya which I've had for 5 years roughly, and last year it refused to flower. Does it mean I should transplant it into a bigger pot? Does the cattleya like that sort of treatment? Can it be done during the winter season.

Thanks for your precious advice.

I dont know if this would help, but I'm planning on putting colored stickers on most of my pots. For example: Red-warm, green- inter., blue-cold, white-resting (less or no water).
I haven't got it all figured out yet. I have to go through this thread and see what needs what.

This is to Jamesallen- I think hercoglossum and moniliforme only get slight rest- I have hercoglossum and goldschmidtianum and I read in a few places they only need a 2 week rest. Slightly less water, no fertilizer and higher light for 2-4 weeks and then warm it back up again for them. I also believe I read they only need temps down to about 50F although mine have been down to 39F and seemed to be fine.

Not sure about the Violetta because I just received it as a gift. Presently they are all outside here in Massachusetts where they will stay until the temps are a steady 40 degrees (usually mid November) then in they all come.
