    I found this Eulophia on a website...they say full shade, Hot to Intermediate temps and that it is a spring bloomer. It gave very little specifics, but I will private message you the website so you can see for yourself.

    Eulophia spectabilis is the accepted name by Kew for Euph. nuda. This orchid is in the cymbidium & catasetums group and would be grown the same. Blooming time in the northern hemisphere is July/August; in the southern hemisphere this orchid blooms in December and January.

    Cheers,
    BD

    Hi Andrea,

    Perhaps I can butt in? Bruce is absolutely correct that Eulophia nuda is a synonym of E. spectabilis. With that established, eulophias are divided into two groups (which does not necessarily reflect relationships): those with above-ground tubers and those with subterranean rhizomes- E. spectabilis falls into the latter group. What this means is that the tubers must be below soil level, though preferably not more than 5 cm deep. They do have a dormancy period, during which you should stop watering as soon as you see the leaves shriveling. They are not fussy about substrates, but it has to be free-draining or the rhizomes will rot.

    Here is a plant I found in western Luzon in the Philippines and growing on loam in fairly bright light:

    [IMG][/IMG]

    And here is a colony of albinos (one is normally colored, if you look closely) growing in humus top-dressed with bamboo leaves in a shaded spot:

    [IMG][/IMG]

    Finally, a photo of my plant which I photographed about 17 minutes ago especially for you. Note how bone dry the substrate is, and yet there is an inflorescence! My plants thrive on benign neglect...

    [IMG][/IMG]

    By the way, this species never fails to flower for me, year after year after year. Goodluck with your plants!

    Wally
