    Really Beautiful. I am really upset that I put mine outside and it lost all its leaves because of too much sun. Brought it back in under lights but don't have much hope for it. Perhaps someday i will buy another and try again.

    Yes, I had in the past, but all of my Brassavola are on mount now and they do better on mount in my growing condition.

    Bill, it should do very well outside. Mine is outside in the yard all summer long.

    All Brassavola like to be on the dry side(let it dry out completely between waterings). I water my mounted plants 2-3X a week during the warmer months and once a week(or every 10 days) during the winter months
