    Those are exceptional! The laelia group are some of the few from the Cattleya alliance that like my front porch. I wonder if the Anceps would be as forgiving as my other laelia types?? I kept going, oh I like that one, then i'd see the next one and decide that was my favorite....I love them all! You have a wonderful collection of that type. I may try one if one of my nurseries has them. Please share the care information for them if you would....
    Thanks for sharing

    L. anceps is actually a fairly easy plant to grow and tolerates a wide range of conditions. If you're able to grow other Laealias, you should have no trouble with L. anceps. They do appreciate bright light.

    to bikerdoc, they are gorgeous!!! I love those petals

    I was just thinking about you and your rooftop greenhouses the other day - I don't live in NYC anymore, but I did get to trade my east windows for big south windows, so I can't complain

    Dear lienluu,

    I love your Laelia anceps 'Anastasia.' Is it FRAGRANT?

    Do you think it could grow in an east facing window, or does it require much more light?

    Thanks in advance,

    Romulus
