    Congrats! Those are very pretty... I rarely see these plants "species" size...often there is only one or two p-bulbs in the pot. Should they be divided on a regular basis?

    It is gorgeous, and obviously very happy. Is it Cycnodes rather than Cycnoches? Cycnoches lehmannii x Mormodes sinuata, right?

    This is the question I am wodering about as well. I bought it definitely as Cycnoches and it is an awarded clone (FCC/AOS), in fact the highest given by the American Orchid Society. The cross you mentioned is correct. So???

    Intersting to note that the back-bulbs look good. You can propogate from these, just like you can from say a cymbidium - in case you didn't know that.
    I find that my back bulbs turn yellow and soft ( not always, but more often than not, with this and all of the other Cyc, Cyd, Mormodes, and Catatesum relatives). Perhaps because I grow in hydroponics ( I'm trying to avoid being pedantic about the words - but i mean growing in standing water ) but since I get good bulbs, sometimes two leads from an old bulb, and often several spikes from a bulb, I'll put up with that.

    Great orchid! I have one bloom right now too!

    Is it true that you can get them to trigger there pollen, because that is how it is done in the wild, on bees? I have 20 beehives on my property. I wonder if I would bring the flowering plant down by the hives, I could see the trigger pollen on an actual bee?
