    High light......they usually bloom in the fall. I keep mine outside in the summer and they get a temp drop in the fall,but I don't withhold water or anything like that. I divided mine and am donating half to my Orchid Society's auction....the other half I will trade. It's once a year bloom doesn't thrill me.

    I have one that I bought in bloom, and I havent bloomed it again yet. The place I bought it from had it with its high light Dendrobiums.

    Default Bought mine from Andy's Orchids in 1997

    and it's bloomed every year for me. It's mount and is allowed to dry between waterings. Bright light. It's in spike right now.

    Mine gets plenty of light, matter of fact, almost too much (it now has several burn spots on the leaves ) Maybe a temp drop will initiate a spike. Now, how do I do that? Would turning on the central air be enough to give it a 'temp drop'?Do they spike from the top of the pb?

    Traci, If you are seeing sunburn ,yours should be getting enough light.....is there any way of letting it summer outside and into early fall...they can take temps down to the 30's....but a few weeks of 40-50 should start a spike. I think all high light genera ,do much better outside in the summer.JMHO

    Traci,
    L. anceps intiates the spike in summer. Don't get a temperature drop here in north Florida in the middle of summer. The plant put out new growths about 3 months ago and the spikes are already showing. 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.
