This is the first actually flowering for this Lycaste hybrid. It produced buds last year, but they blasted when i went out of town. Hopefully the other flowers wont have the odd petal defect. I am slowly getting the hang of these lycastes. Previously I let them dry out too much thinking all Lycastes needed a dry rest when the leaves dropped. Now I cut back thw water when the leaves drop off a skinnerii related cross, but they never completely dry out. Next i will focus on keeping the leaves from spotting.. ugh!
