    Default Zygo anyone??

    I don't see Zygopetalum mentioned much here - so I'm going to ask if anyone grows this genus?

    Mine has been in bloom off and on since February - with two new spikes on the way! She's just a NOID, but she gives me confidence

    So different looking, and very fragrant ( even though the fragrance is reminiscent of hyacinth flavored bug spray...).

    I really like Zygo's but thy do not like me much.
    I can keep them alive....... just.
    Had a NOID that flowered brilliantly for 6 months & then the decline.
    I have Zygo Artur Elle that seems to be making a recovery from loosing all it,s leaves.Have tried lots of ways to grow them but none seem to really suit my conditions.

    I got my first zygo in March for my birthday, and since then it has grown 5 new growths, and is putting out 4 new spikes. I grow mine with my stans, and gongoras. It really seems to like it's situation! It is a Kiwi Geyser Mendenhall. Mine also seems to have that subtle scent of bug spray! It's wierd!

    I had a species Zygo a while back, but it didn't like me, I didn't like all the black spotting on the leaves and the brown deciduous foliage. When it croaked, I wasn't too sad. I hear the hybrids are much less fussy. Yours looks good, Sarah!

    I think I'll stay away from any orchid that loses it's foliage, even naturally - that would be WAY to disturbing to a newbie....
