    Nice one Ron.

    Your photography skills appear to be getting better and better .... or is it just the camera?

    For me, no really good camera yet and my photo skills are really novice. I still have to wait for an available camera that I can check out from the office - most of them are always checked out by our students and too bad for me because priority goes to the faculty and students not me because I'm staff.

    How's Leyte nowadays? The weather is getting cooler this time of year. Rains often here in Manila with occasional gloomy skies.

    Geoff, Day time temperature in the low 80s(F) is okay with Den. cuthbertsonii if you let it cool off a bit at night. It really likes good humidity and good air movement but good water quality is a must.
    My night temp. minimum is set to 15 winter, 19 summer ( deg.C) which I guess is about 60 and 66 F. or thereabouts. But it is quite a time since I tried cuthbertsonii last. The other factors are not much of a problem in my set-up - and when I think about it, my last try with cuthie' waswhen I lived elsewhere with quite a different greenhouse set-up. Maybe I should have another go ? You inspire me.

    I use a Dew Point Cabinet giving high humidity and controlled temperatures for raising seedlings - it has been pretty full for a couple of years after I had a batch of paph flasks, but the plants are now coming out ( first ones in bud) leaving me some space , so maybe I will look around in this group. What do you think ?

    Geoff, 60-66F should be okay but don't let the day time temperature get way too high and often though. If you can get it down to the mid 50s in the winter, it will be better.
    My growing condition is on the cool side(55F min. to 73F max), but I have seen people grow them under warmer condition. Use good water and give it another try, Geoff.

    Default Haraella retrocalla

    It has a quite strong fragrance that has a sort of lemony note.
    Can bloom any time of year, it's constantly either in spike, bud, or bloom that last about 4 weeks.

    Well done. I've grown Harella myself once or twice, but never seen more than a single flower at one time. Good culture here !
