    No worries. The genus listing is really there as a reference when you need it. You are always more that welcome to simply ask the author of a thread about the genus of the orchid-- and if the author of the thread doesn't know, some other member will. Have fun Toni!

    Cheers,

    A little over a year later and here she is...she's grown quite a bit! Still a long way to go before blooming though... Fertilizing this year (as opposed to pretty much forgetting to do so last year) should contribute to more rapid growth

    I saw some people have used leca or other clay media in regular pots for catts since they like to have lots of air around the roots. Would it be too soon to pot this in something like that? Being a seedling still I'd expect it needs to stay a little bit more moist.

    Lovely choice! This will be a soft powdery blueish lavenderish flower. Can't wait for the blooms!
