    Default Finally bloomed :D

    It's been quite a while since I've posted something, I've been really busy with school work!

    I posted a pic of this Lycaste (Lycaste skinneri var. guatemalensis) I rescued last year.

    It's its first bloom, not bad I would say. Hope you like it!

    Wow, Gustavo, that is one beautiful Lycaste bloom! I love the pink from the skinneri. Wasn't it worth the wait? I'm getting hooked on these - I just picked up a hybrid - skinneri by costata. Do you know it? I'll post a photo when I can. Yours looks so healthy - you must be pleased!

    Nice save! Lycaste skinneri flowers are supposed to be very long-lasting... Would love to find one of those here. What is your culture like?
