    When you say "intermediate to cool," how "cool" are you talking? My basement gets some really good light, but it's consistently around 60-65 degrees down there. Do you think it would bloom under those conditions, or is that too chilly for it? The humidity is good down there...what do you think?

    I'm seriously LOVING this Lycaste!!!

    Is this night temperature ? In my GH at night in winter, temperatures drop to 53-55°F and this is good to grow Lycaste (skinneri, aromatica, lasioglossa).

    I would consider that intermediate. In our highland growing areas the night temps would be 55 -65 F and day temps in the mid 70s and I have seen Lycastes doing very well here.
