    Default Laelia Perinii

    I am so happy to have another species that grows well in our heat. The flower, however, fainted upon opening. I have moved it indoors and the flower recovered for pictures. Lately all of my cattleya with "less substance" faint in the heat. The afternoons here have been too hot to even keep up with repotting. I read this plant should produce several flowers at a time but this one only seems to give one at a time. I'm just glad it survived my care another year. lol

    Nice one Connie, summer heat can be a damper !! Your will adjust and learn to flower in more suitable conditions. Thats what most of my plants do, summer blooming plants bloom in spring from March to May which are hottest months in my city, the autumn bloomers bloom from July to September which actually are still warm but the 100+ heat from April, May is reduced to a bearable 70+. The winter and spring bloomers bloom from November to Feb which is the coolest we get, nights in mid 50s and days in mid 70s.

    Lovely bloom. Looks like a classic to me. Well done. We are on our third day of 100 plus degree days.

    After reading the temps of a few others on here, I guess it's not so hot here in the summer after all! lol And I would say this flower is indeed a classic.

    I feel so bad for so many people, especially in the central and eastern US, dealing with such hot temperatures this year. Sure, to us in southwest Arizona, 100+ is the norm, but we're set up to deal with it and habituate ourselves for the time that we're NOT in air conditioned comfort. I'm thinking cool thoughts to all of you.

    Beautiful and so elegant and graceful! !and the flower! lol On the temp issues it wouldnt be so bad to admit on here that us orchid enthusiasts would find a way to nurture them in the centre of a volcano if we had to and put our misery last. Thoughts to all struggling under those heat waves.
