    I would also agree. The two of them are now on my back porch where I can see them from the kitchen window.

    Thanks Zain, I have a feeling I am going to like this new 70-300mm with macro switch, it may become the lens I use the most as I like all the shots I take gotten so far!

    I like this one. You sure do well with catasetums. That's one genus I have avoided so far.

    Last year was not a good year for me with Catasetums, when I repotted last year I used a different media then I had used the year before and most of mine did not bloom at all, needless to say I repotted with the same media I had used before that and it seems to have worked.

    I think the flowering is about the same, the difference is the new lens I am using, I only paid $20.00 for this one so there are some that are not expensive.

    Catasetum are about as easy as they come, IMO!

    Growing season to dormancy leaves at least 4 months of no care required at all.
