I think all high light genera ,do much better outside in the summer.JMHO
    I absolutely cannot put my orchids outside. Everything I have growing outside is infected with aphids & slugs. I would be out at 3am to see if my orchids were OK. I'm thinking, my basement is about 10 degrees cooler that the upstairs. Maybe that would be enough if I put my plant in a sunny window downstairs where it would also get a temp drop..

I grow mine in the greenhouse that gets shade during the summer and full sun during the winter (it's located under water oak trees). I grow the plant along with Den. chrysotoxum, Den thrysiflorum, nobile dendrobiums, and Den lendeyi. Seems to like a winter rest with little water, but lots of light.

    My plant is also putting out new growth, it just had a new growth mature and immediately is putting out new growth. Do laelias flower any time of the year, just based on the changing seasons? Maybe when it goes from summer to fall, the flowers will initiate. I just assumed that because there wAS A NEW MATURE PB THAT IT WOULD AUTOMATICALLY PUT OUT A spike. Sorry, caps locked.

    Traci,
    Miy L. anceps only blooms once each year. It's flowering time is in late fall. I havae alwayes seen the blooms in December. By the way the inflouresence is about four feet long which doesn't make for the best house grown plant.

    FOUR FEET LONG???? Holy smokes, if I get this plant to flower and it ends up that big, I'm going to see if the orchid farmer I work for would trade it for something more, um, housing friendly!

    I am dying for a L. anceps but are all of the spikes that long? Four feet! Do they usually just bloom annually if indoor grown?
