    Thank you Yes it's beautiful orchid. I am surprised though that whenever I go to an orchid show here in NSW, there seems to be very few people and nurseries growing or offering lycastes. Though maybe I am not looking hard enough :P

    Carl a very nicely shaped clone of the species as well! Beautiful! By the way...the species name with plant nomenclature is kept non-capitalized, so it should read Lycaste bradeorum. How long of a semi dry rest did you give it?

    Thanks again guys. Ron I think it was almost 2 months. The grower told me that it will lose its leaves and once that happen he advised me not to water it or give it fertilizer and occasionally mist it to prevent the bulbs from shriveling too much and that's what I did

    Its true in UK too- Lycastes have disappeared off the map.
    I think they went out of fashion a long time ago, when some of the latest hybrids ( latest at that time) were beautiful in flower when they had dropped their leaves, but the size of the leaves put off many growers -put me off, anyway, - the rule seemed to be allow 4 cymbidiums for the space occupied by one Lycaste..

    I think that is the case too Dorsetman. The grower whom I buy most of my lycastes said that the required space to keep them turns off some would be lycastes grower as the pleated leaves can get a bit big, not to mention that they don't look that special when they lose their leaves.

    Beautiful. Love Lycaste but seems to be a rarity here as most growers seem to be put off by their reputation of being cool to intermediate orchids. Have only seen them once and that was in the Cameron Highlands where the conditions are more intermediate.
