    Lycaste are popular with UK growers - not that you actually see many plants on the show benches - because they will grow well without needing much heat. A winter night temperature a bit above 10˚C., is fine for them. And over here, heat is the biggest part of our growing costs.
    This is of course a species ; I bought this plant a few years ago - maybe 4 or 5, as a single leafless bulb, with a new growth an inch high. I got bigger bulbs , year by year, and this year a second growth has started from one of the earlier bulbs, so its on its way. I want a biggish pot, or pan perhaps, with maybe half a dozen growths, so that I get maybe 40 of the flowers all the way round. Not impossible, and maybe another 7 years ?

    It The flowers are not large - perhaps 3 cm - a bit over an inch across, and last quite well. The 7 or 8 you see here is typical of a good bulb.

    Scented - or as they say aromatic - but that is not one of my strong points, so you have to imagine it. Well, you would anyway, until some new internet invention allows me to send it with the pic !

    It almost looks too perfect. What a beautiful and well grown/bloomed lycaste. Love the yellow against the blue background.

    cheers,
