Brief Grow Blog and Pictures

 

Clowesia Rebecca Northen (Grace Dunn x rosea) is a well-recognized plant and good for breeding. It is easy to grow and has beautiful, frilly pink flowers with a marvelous citrus fragrance, produced on multiple pendent inflorescences.  Mormodes Mimi (lawrenceana x ignea) is very floriferous, blooming with 2-3 upright spikes per bulb, carrying 12-15 flowers each in beautiful orange tones covered in fine burgundy spots. This cultivar also has very wide petals that give the blooms a fullness not often seen in Mormodes. These will flower late in the year with cascades of 12-15 flowers in shades of orange to pink. Mormodias make spectacular plants at maturity, producing lots of charming flowers cascading over the sides of the pot. ( - Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids )

Through April, I resisted the urge to water except by backfilling the reservoir.  I repeated as needed every few days keeping in mind a brief hot spell.

 

The new growth is developing nicely.

 

As long as temperatures stay near seasonable for this time of year I will refrain from top watering.  However, these bulbs are much thinner then other Catasetinaes so will also keep an eye on the condition of the supporting backbulb.
