ISO Wedding/Marriage themed orchids
Default ISO Wedding/Marriage themed orchids

My husband and I finally tied the knot and I would like to commemorate the occasion by purchasing an orchid with a name that is on theme (or kinda on theme). So, who better to ask for suggestions than the wonderful and oh-so-knowledgeable OB members!

I'm open to any type of orchid that will do well in the conditions I can provide.

My indoor growing conditions:
Warm season temps 22-29C/72-84F and not normally below 20C/68F at night.
Cool season temps 20-24C/68-75F (sometimes a little higher) and no lower than 17C/63F at night.

Humidity is usually 40-60% but occasionally dips lower when we have the house open. Almost always rebounds at night after we close up.

Light - I can provide natural light anywhere in the range of 500-3,000 foot candles. We have mostly-unobstructed east and south windows, some with and without sheer curtains. A very small plant can sit on my side table under my only grow light that provides 500-800 fc for 11-12 hours.

Outdoor plants will need to survive 3-41C/37-105F over the year. We can occasionally dip lower or go higher but not often. Humidity is unpredictable but mostly falls between 20-70%. Light = anything. Full sun, morning/afternoon sun, light/moderate/all-day shade, you name it I can probably provide it.

Other info:
I love Phals and they do extremely well for me. Currently only have two species with hybrids making up the rest of the lot. I'm leery of the truly exclusively hot-growers. I do have heat mats, so if that's all they'll need, feel free to suggest them!

I acquired a Zygopetalum and an Oncidium-hybrid in September, both have been repotted, and both are still alive. The Zygo is putting out a new growth and everything looks good as far as I can tell. The Degarmoara/Wilhelmara still looks good after an emergency repot at the wrong time in its growth cycle.

Let me know what you think!

Cattleya Hawaiian Wedding Song

Orchidwiz search does find a bunch of Phals with "Wedding" in the name, but they're all at least a few years old (based on registration date) so likely not currently available. (There are so many Phal hybrids, it's not all that common for one to be so fantastic that it gets cloned for longer availability) ... a Google search, or just going to websites of Phal vendors, would be your best bet.

I'm glad it was a girl who wrote this.
