    Red face Roth. Koolau Starbright "Elizabeth"

    Does anyone have experience with this guy? It's got so much in it, that it's hard for me to see if it would do good in high heat...or has nodosa in it? Any info would help!

    I'm afraid I don't have any personal experience with this one, but at least I will bump it back to the top by responding!

    According to OrchidWiz it's 1/4 Brassavola nodosa; 1/4 Encyclia phoenicea; 1/8 Guarianthe (Cattleya) aurantiaca; 1/8 Sophronitis crispata; 1/8 Cattleya forbesi and a few other minor ones. These cover a fairly wide range of temperatures in their preferences, but most of them like warm conditions, and it looks like fairly bright light would be good. I hope some of our Catt growers can give you better answers. Diane? Becky?

    BTW, the Genus used by OrchidWiz is Hrubyara and it seems to suggest Roth is not a valid Genus because of the reclassification.

    Cheers,

    Rob
