    Default Lycaste aromatica

    Here's my first Lycaste It smells like cinnamin buns. It's a warm grower and it is deciduous in the winter. It's a recommended first Lycaste. I will be placing this plant outside during the summer so it gets good light. The deciduous Species require higher light than the others. The blooms come off of last years pesudobulbs.

    Here's the bloom from yesterday night...


    And here is the bloom today I'm not sure if it will get more yellow. I hope it does. I also read somewhere that the colour intensity improves when grown under higher lighting.

    Lovely photos, Fren! I just bought this same guy in NY last week. No signs of spikes, but I can be patient for a very short time...

    Fren,
    I really like your Lyc aromatica. I actually have a Lyc. Skinneri in bloom and I am already in love with Lycastes. My problem is that I do not have space for such big plants

    I will post some pics when I have the chance

    Thanks for the comments

    I think the flower is still young so it's green, just opened a day (That's what I think) Or it might be that I need to give it more light next time.

    My plant isn't really big acutally, at least not yet. I don't know how big the leaves will get because they are still young, but they should all drop off for the winter to save space.

    I think Lyc. Skinneri might be much bigger but I'm not sure. I do like the look of those ones. I think I saw one if it's hybrids and it was huge, with long leaves too

    I find patience HIGHLY over-rated personally. LOL

    LOVELY photos Fren, I'm jealous!
