    How do you keep these guys cool during the summer? (or are they warmth-tolerant?)

    Took the words right out of my mouth, Jason. Are you growing that inside, in air conditioning? That's a gorgeous orchid, and all the more impressive because those Odontoglossums and Odontiodas are really hard to grow, IMO.

    That's really nice, Jane. We have to keep our Odas pretty near the cool cell toward the back of the greenhouse or they suffer--especially now, when the heat index is supposed to be 115F....

    Really pretty flowers! Nice coloring--looks like someone painted the petals with a whole set of watercolors!

    Sorry I haven't checked all the questions 'til now. Yes, I grow in a greenhouse so the spikes were formed before I put out in the tent for the summer. I just put on a bench with others at the cooler end (near door).The size? Well let me go out now & check with a ruler Pant-pant, puff, puff--I'm back--about 3" long & 3" wide.
