    OMG! such beautiful flowers for 10 months!! Wish I could grow them here in Bangalore. Probably it is a little too hot for them to handle

    Thanks.

    Margo, I grow it under medium light, but less than normal Cattleya light. I would say the max temperature this species can handle is about 80F. The temperature for mine is never warmer than 75F during the day, most of time it is cooler than that.

    I've always loved this one, but knowing its cultural needs have resisted buying one (at least thus far)

    Congrats to you Tom !

    I don´t have it and I know it´s very difficult to grow cuthbertsoniis.
    I try this time vexillarius and agathodaemonis . But they are not bloom till today .
    When they bloom someday , I `m going to buy a cuthie

    Thank you all!

    Andrea, based on what you have posted here, you should be able to grow Den. cuthbertsonii... Vexillarius and agathodaemonis are very very nice species and they have been on my Den. sp wish list for few years now. I can find Den. agathodaemonis in U.S. if I am willing to pay big $$$ for it, but Den. vexillarius is nearly impossible to be found here.

    I LOVE this species... probably too tricky for me and my environment. So glad for the photos to enjoy from afar!
