I got Fong Cing awarded on female flowers! Pretty cool! This is the plant that William Green gave me back in December 2019.

Here's a video about it: Show & Tell - Girl Power!! - YouTube...

It was 53 here at my house this morning! Amazingly chilly, felt great though!

Check out those links I posted above. They'll fill you in on the cold-intolerance of this species.

Yes, exactly. I think the heat can be alleviated with additional water at the roots for longer, which appears to be working.

They would go yellow (too much sun) and slowly wither away and die. Moving them to shadier conditions helped with the bleaching and changing media to slightly more water retentive wood (i.e. orchiata...

Odd! He posts plants on Instagram regularly as a means for sales and he just gave a lecture (August I believe) for the New Orleans OS. I'm curious about what he's up to now.

You know, no one (including myself) asked about the current status of your plants! What makes you want to make such a large shift in light reaching the plants? Are they doing poorly?

I would continue watering to get the bulbs plump again. Keep temps high and provide lots of light for now. No fertilizer and let us know if any new growths pop out. Hopefully at least one piece...

That's a major shade reduction when the sun is still strong and the temps are still high. My guess is that the plants would be fine with less shade but not at that quick of a reduction this time of...

You'll have to wait until the plant goes dormant to make the comparison. The plant's development can change pace from year to year, so the bulbs might not be at the same size (or same stage) on the...

CW gets pretty big! I don't know how the plants compare to ventricosum though. The flowers are easily distinguishable since CW has flat flowers and CV has petals/sepals that are swept back.

Tough to say! You might be able to force a new growth starting now if you can keep it really warm. If possible, can you manipulate the light so it doesn't have a winter?

It's big enough that it should bounce back. Keep it dry until it starts a new growth and pot up as normal. You'll probably lose some leaves and even some bulbs as it uses its stored resources. I bet...
