    Cool Brassavola nodosa

    The blooms have begun opening...I will update when all 10 spikes are in bloom. A few of the spikes have 7-10 buds and a few have 3-6 flowers...it's going to be a sight when they are all open.

    Connie, do you keep this outside all year round? what is your winter low temp? wondering if this would do well here in california, my winter lows are roughly mid to low 40's. i've seen people list several brassavolas as cool tolerant, but not this one...? do all your vanda types stay outside in winter?
