    This one seems to handle the heat pretty well. During the summer my grow room can get into the low 90's if I'm not careful but it doesn't appear to be bothered.

    Thanks for the info, I checked out the parentage, and the parents handle heat well given the light is maintained.

    Love this one and yours is so beautiful. Well done. Haven't seen one flower that heavily. Usually mine has on half the blooms per spike that yours does but then I grow mine cool during the winter months. Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, any tips Mitch? I've had a Zygopetalum for a few years now and it's never rebloomed for me. In fact, every new growth seems to turn brown. The plant is still alive but something I'm doing isn't quite right.

    Well, keep in mind this is an intergeneric cross of Zygopetalum and Aganisia. I would have to do some searching around to find which specific species of each genus are but the cross seems to tolerate higher temps than most Zygopetalum species in general. I do have Zygopetalum mackeyi that is struggling under my warm/very warm conditions. I think it will be alright, though.

    This one blooms about every 6 months for me and the flowers last up six weeks.
