Thanks for that, while I grow tons of plants (not just orchids and not just houseplants), and I have a fair grasp of the basics, I'm a little naive on the more advanced and widely differening aspects...

A little update, things are still growing - and I know these are supposed to be big, but everyday I see this thing and am just shocked.

My largest Fredclarkeara topped over 24" and then started to...

Another week down things seem to be going good. Just a general question, and I can't seem to find anything on this online or even on the forums (a couple of quick searches). For catasetum types, do...

I'm in Pennsylvania, zone 7b. I'm located at the top of a hill / ridge, so my yard gets full sun from sun up to sundown, no shade, no windbreaks. I grow huge tomato plants, corn, melons,...

Thanks for the heads up. It's crazy that it can get so big, as every plant / bulb I've ever found for sale (including the ones I bought) had the largest bulbs being no bigger than 6-8"... I guess...

Thanks for the replies, everyone. It's been another week and the increased watering / fertlizing seems to be paying dividends. I had no idea Fdk. After Dark got so big, it's just beginning to grow...
