    Ah, how I envy you! I have another clone of Otara Huan Yuan Bay but for the last two years it has only put out vegetative growth and no flowers!Flower spikes form but will dry up when about an inch long. I think it might be due to our hot climate >90F in the day.All other catts alliance seem to do fine. But I am still keeping my fingers crossed. Hope springs eternal; haha.

    Oh wow, it could be the heat I suppose- do you have ok humidity for all that heat? Maybe you should try a new plant...I have a few otaaras and even with the fickle chicago weather they do well!!

    I have never been able to get the smaller catts to thrive here either. I've tried at least a dozen so far....the best tolerant is my species Intermedia. It loves it here. I sit and drool on my keyboard when I see the smaller catts on here. Esp. the pink ones like these!

    Thanks Becky and Connie. Our humidity here is almost always in the 80s.The only mini catt that flowers on every new pseudobulb is the yellow Pot Little Fairy - maybe because it has no S occinea in its parentage[?].
