    Very Easy - Just be sure they have enough light.

    I got my Bc Maikai ‘Mayumi’ AM/AOS as a nearly rootless division gift with an orchid purchase. It one of the most vigorous of all my cattleya types. It just doesn't stop growing...it's a weed
    I love the spots on the one you have!

    Talking Holy Olfaction Batman!!!

    thanks guys

    i just got home (3am) and found out it's fragrant! and severely so! my entire bedroom smells kinda like jasmine. (the the owner of the farm wasn't sure 'cause he's never there at night)

    p.s. Diane, do you think this would be ok to leave outside in Camarillo?

    Very nice primary hybrid (B. nodosa x Catt. bowringiana)!

    Definitely get another one!

    Oh, dear - I think you better let me keep it for you... I mean, fragrance might bother you too much!! (Is it big enough to divide yet???)

    I would bring it in when it is going to drop below upper 30s - especially if it is not in a sheltered area. (watch that wind chill factor!)
