    Yep, Although the jury is still out on whether it is a tibicinis or brysiana. It may actually be a natural hybrid between the two. The color was more pink when it first opened, and then it faded to the orange. I have 3 people telling me it's tibicinis, and 3 saying it's brysiana. I am still waiting on one of my friends to have Carnevali get back with him on his opinion.

    Thanks Jason I actually have a couple of the Monte Bellos. I have met with Eli a few times when I was in PR a while back. I believe his dad is the one who made that cross. I'm not sure what kind of media it is going to be in when you get it. But if it is in broken down tree fern take it out of that, and put it into a basket with coarse bark. I grow all of my laelia/schomb hybrids in higher light then what you would grow a catt. Ussually they need the higher light to bloom. Because of this cross having the laelia in it it will be able to take cooler temps for longer amount of time. Other then the higher light, the culture can be treated like catt. Feed lightly once a week, water a couple of times a week. Like I said though... Be sure of the media that it is in. If it is in the broken down tree fern get it out of that quick! I prefere baskets over pots because schombs seem to like the baskets better. They prefer to be mounted above everything else, but that's up to you. Unless you have a green house I would put it into a basket. Another good schomb hybrid to check out is laelia nemesis. I'll have to look around to see if I can find a picture, but it is a beautiful flower and a very robust grower. If you have any more questions, please feel free to ask. I hope I could help

    Your welcome. It's not that the tree fern is bad. It just holds too much moisture around the schombs roots. I have had some bad experiences using that stuff before. It works very well with other types of plants, but not schombs

    Hi ABro. Just a small question for the "Schom king"... I have been lucky enough to have found a supplier of Schom tibicinis here in Australia and the plants they grow are cold hardened to some degree, thus they are grown without heat in a cool climate for them. I am further south in Melbourne where the climate is more mediteranean with cold winters down to 4C celsius and summer highs upwards of 40C celsius!! how would you suggest I grow and flower these orchids here? I do have a glasshouse though not heated yet, but can I get these babies to flower? any other pointers on watering and fertilising that may benefit my attempt to grow these?
    I have always wanted one of these and am rather excited to finally find one of them.
    Look forward to your comments and help.
    Cheers
