I purchased a Burrageara Stenfen Isler "Lava Flow" recently. It has a long flower spike with two open flowers and several buds ready to open. As a relative newcomer, this is "my first orchid" to take care of, as my wife has been nuturing her Phals and Paphs. I have read many different opinions on how to water, fertilize, and care for during winter months. The person at the nursery recommened dormancy in winter and only water when the main p-bulb begins to shrivel during winter. Also he said not to fertilize except when the orchid is growing. I have been taught to weekly weakly fertilize when watering. It is in a south bay window and does get cool at night. (70 day, 60 at night...our Christmas Cactus thrives under these conditions). We are located in western NY (Region 5a). Since it is a hybrid of four genus, there isn't too much information about their care.
Thanks for your input. Gregg C
I'm not up on that genus at all, so I'll leave if for the others, but I wanted to welcome you, Gregg!
