I know we have the native Brassia caudata down towards the Keys which has been an elusive find for me. I know they require a little drying out between waterings. Everyone has told me they are going to require a load of air movement.
    Thanks in advance for any advice.
    Lots of air movement and never let them get completely dry, but don't keep them wet - ever. Their roots like to breath more than be packed in wet medium, so avoid sphag and opt for an open mix. They get quite large fairly quickly also. And when they get sickly (some do) they attract all the problem bugs - especially scale. I grow them right along side my warm, light loving phrags and mini-cattleyas (the ones that require less light than standard cattleya orchids.) Please ask any question you have.

    cheers,
    BD

    Bruce, Thanks for the speedy reply.
    I've grown intergentics off and on over the years. Never to any degree with success. Of course, I really would like to grow species and the few primary hybrids I can find. I know they are not going to be easy like my vandas.
    The very few I have left are all potted in fern fiber baskets. I wonder if the species types would do well in them?
    While I never thought I would EVER say I might consider growing orchids in the house...I just might with these...maybe. The heat is going to be the biggest problem, I think.
    I do have every plant on a spray program including the insecticides avid and acephate. I spray once every 10 days with these.
    I'm still looking for our native Brs caudata. If anyone knows a source, please pm me.

    Nice flowers.
    I should check the 'Phalaenopsis, Oncidium, & Intergenerics'
    Forum more often.
