A small update here... While doing some experimenting with my Cycnodes Wine Delight, I noticed that the spike definitely seeks out the light. I had to rotate it left / right for a while because the...

Thanks for all the replies, it has made me give a second thought to how I'm growing this plant, and, in particular the note about how (per the video with Dr. Motes) imports are often nutrient...

Thanks for the replies. I do know that the roots are not nearly as big as I've seen on some plants, but it's just what I got from Motes - figuring it was enough to support blooming since it was sold...

It was sold as blooming size and it has an old flower spike, so it's bloomed before. If it is a winter bloomer, that makes sense. It's been growing well, just seems to be missing the "motivation"...

What size bulb pan would you recommend? I think I've only seen those locally in clay, but I never really looked that hard. All of these plants pictured are still growing in the pots they arrived in...

It's been two weeks and here's what developed. The early blooming black pearl is now beginning to open flowers, finally. I feel like it was the better part of a month from buds to flowers opening. ...

Phalaenopsis Violacea Alba

Blooming Habits / Bloom Timing of Species

Even though we lump all of these plants (mormodes, cycnoches, catasetum, clowesia, etc.) together in that the general care is the same, the bloom times for each can vary a lot. Some catasetums bloom...

This has been my observation as well, for more than just catasetinae too. Do you know the science behind that?

Yes, I have some spanish moss, I actually grabbed some from an orchid grower when I was visiting family in Florida. And I also have the dark form of this species, per the plant tag.

I grow most of my plants under lights indoors in a heated terrarium - would that help or is it your experience that they "just know" somethings off and then struggle?
