    Default Lycaste Cassiopeia

    Christina, a recent member living in Vancouver, sold me this specimen-sized Lycaste, last summer. Guys, meet "Cassie!"

    She has six blooms with two more buds on the way, and the flowers are 6" across and 5.5" tall. The flowers are very fragrant, but it's a weird scent: sweet, but a bit cloying, slightly melony.

    I really need to do a photo shoot with her, but haven't had a chance. So I wanted to at least grab some quick snaps.

    Wonderful! With flowers that color melony would be appropriate. Look at the size of those leaves, she's will be a big girl? Cool flowers.

    Easy: Click on the paper clip icon (next to the smile drop down) in the Post Reply header. The paper clip will open up an upload photo window. Upload up to 4 images and when you are ready, click the paper clip and select where you want to put each image in your post. There will be a list. If you do not select your images, the post will have all images you uploaded at the bottom below any text you typed.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,
    BD

    McJulie,
    The pictures are great!
    I just got a Lycaste and wonder how you take care of yours. Any advice would be more than welcomed
