Laelia anceps var veitchiana has seen a fair amount of rain and wind, fortunately the temps have been more moderated with the storms that have come through thus far. I have never discovered why they often change their flowering period, sometimes they can start in November, sometimes the buds will open in March (obviosly stopping during the coldest month). I like instead those species or hybrids that will prepare their spikes in Autumn and wait until Spring to go ahead. An example is Cattleya percivaliana, it should flower in Winter, but mine is so wise that it will wait until Spring 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
