    Last year I bought this orchid bare root but in bloom at the San Francisco Orchid Show. After the bloom ended I potted it up in bark and it grew leaves. Now it has lost the leaves because I assume it is deciduous. I have been unable to find culture notes. Does it need a Winter rest with little or no water or should I continue to water while I wait for a spike. Anyone have experience? I would appreciate your advice. Thanks

    I've never heard of it. Do you remember who you bought it from?

    The parentage is listed with the RHS. I'm not familiar with the parents either, but that should give you a place to start. If you track down the species involved you should be able to make an educated guess on the culture.

    It looks like a lycaste that's all i can say maybe grow it like that and see how it goes if you can't find anything on it

    This is a good starting article. Hopefully it helps and provides some guidance. At the moment I am working on improving my lycaste care. I am happy to share what I know with the caveat that I am improving.

    It looks like a great cross. I would not mind having one. Do you remember the vendor?

    Sorry, the vendor was one of hundreds at the San Francisco orchid show last February. Will there ever be orchid shows again.
