Nuke the fu&*ers. If the infestation is bad, hitting with water, alcohol, or soapy water won't do a thing. Those remedies are good for minor infestations or for an uptick in spider mites.

That's really nice and great to see the polyploid next to the diploid! 'Blue Sky' is most likely a cross between loddigessii and harrisoniana (hence the bloom time), but it's beautiful, none-the-less!

Beautiful! I think that one will have a nice head of blooms on it as it gets larger and more mature!

I think the online advice from a lot of sources is just parroted from other sources by people who don't have much experience actually growing the plants they're advising on. It's frustrating. But I...

My Catts don't ever fully dry during the growing season, with the media "approaching dryness" between watering. I know that's a squishy definition, but it's as accurate as I can get it!

Ah, I see what you mean and it's a good question. I honestly don't know! However, I suspect the natural hybrid between rex and luteola is actually unnamed.

The natural hybrid would have to change to Belle Mariza unless the 1944 publication was "fixed," as discussed by ES.

Cool cross between Cattleya rex and luteola. Of interest, a friend on my Facebook post pointed out that Cattleya x blossfeldiana was not properly described, therefore, the name isn't taxonomically...
