Ha, I like the reference. These plants are really interesting and keep me guessing. Their biology is fascinating to me.

Ok, so these plants are so strange. That's probably why I feel so at home with them, ha.

I've always wanted a Rex to grow since I first saw them and I recently managed to land a Rex var Ayacucho. I've read up on the care of Cattleya Rex fairly extensively and saw a particularly good...

Day vs Nighttime Humidity

Around the start of this year I got back into orchid growing, but this time I wanted to be able to grow a bit more of the more finicky plants that I could never get to do well as a windowsill grower...

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"...

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...
