    Default Need help with care of 2 orchids

    Purchased a Ryntonleya and Broecanthe because their flowers interested me. However, carelessly I failed to research the growing requirements. Can anyone help? Sorry too tired to attach pictures.

    Rhyntonleya is Broughtonia x Cattleya x Rhyncholaelia.

    Bromecanthe is Broughtonia x Guarianthe x Myrmecophila.

    Both should be fine in general Cattleya alliance growing conditions, perhaps a little on the hotter and brighter side due to the Broughtonia influence. Cattleytonia Keith Roth and Guaritonia Why Not are a couple early and well known representatives of the general type.
