    Default Anacheilium garcianum/ Encyclia garciana culture ?

    I have had this species since 2014, bloom sized the entire time, and have not had a single flower. I think my temperatures are appropriate but perhaps the light has been inadequate. The most recent location is among larger plants that are getting bright light but this plant is mostly shaded by them with occasional, brief periods of very bright light. I would say it is getting the kind of light I give to most of my Bulbophyllum or maybe a bit less. It is mounted on cork with a bit of sphagnum and the plant and roots have done very well. Just no flowers.

    Any ideas?

    From my own experience I have found Prosthechea garciana to be a reasonable grower but reluctant bloomer. Does your plant get new growths regularly and grow them at least as large as the previous growths? Does it get sheathes? I agree with the others that a picture may help, and a bit more about culture - fertilizer and temperatures.

    As a mounted plant I would worry about it getting enough moisture, though it certainly appreciates being well drained. If it isn't in high humidity and watered nearly every day it may be moisture stressed just enough to hold it back. I would place it where it gets more constant light that is better controlled, and gradually adapt it to Cattleya level light gradually. Sorry, I'm not a Bulbo grower so I can't really access it from that statement.
