    Default Lycaste Ciliata 'Dragonstone' HCC/AOS

    A few weeks ago I came home from my orchid society with three new orchids which I posted pics of on the forum. The Lycaste just opened a week ago and floods the den with a delightful fragrance in the evening. What a nice Christmas scent and treat. It has 5 nice blooms and a new growth coming on strong. I have never had a Lycaste before. I would appreciate any info on how to keep it thriving. Would love to have a larger plant with lots of blooms for next Christmas. I am really hooked on the color and fragrance of this one. Thanks in advance and Happy New Year to all!

    Big and beautiful! I can only comment on this orchid as I have never raised a Lycaste. I hope it continues to do well in the new year. AL

    looks nice, but the glare from all the xmas lights makes it a bit difficult to see ....although the 2nd one is easier....nice lemon yellow! and a nice light display too!

    Thanks, I was also suprised by the size of the blooms and the number of them considering the size of the plant. At times in the evening the fragrance can almost be over powering.

    sounds like a good brother repellant then...i have to get me one! as well as some of those carrion bulbos, and that ornithecerancum (is that how you spell it?) that smells like ozone.
