    BD,
    Is this plant fragrant at night? I just got one and I'm hoping for blooms next spring.

    I will have to check. I did not notice any fragrance when I was measuring it the other day. Maybe at night though.

    Cheers,

    That's a beauty, Bruce! Love the pure white and purple freckled lip. The size is startling.

    Hi Bruce,
    I renew this old thread :-)
    Well, I have the brassocattleya, too. My plant is about two years old. Can you tell me how old was your plant when it bloomed first time? My plant looks as big as your flowering one!

    Two years should be old enough if it is that big. That plant is probably 2 or 3 years old. I *think* it is in a 5 or 6 inch pot but would have to go look to find out.

    Cheers,

    My plant is growing in 3" pot. The biggest growth from rizome till leaf top is about 4,5"- 5" long. The plant is growing young roots and new growths, but has no sign of blooming.

    This plant is definitely blooming size, I think.

    Mine has a bunch of red spots on the leaves and has a sheath that should bloom soon. Are you giving it enough light? Brassavola hybrids usually can take a BUNCH of light. Mine gets about 6 hours a day of direct sun.

    You know, our sun is so brutal that I have to hide almost all my plants under spanish moss (tillandsia usneoides).
    Maybe I should pull this plant out of shade.
    Thank you for your advice!
