    That species has a range of colors and color isn't a reliable way to identify orchids. If you got it from me, it should be a trustworthy ID. The floribunda I used to have came from a GW trader who has a big cool growing species collection. I know I sent my Masd. infracta (the only Masdie that ever bloomed for me) to someone else, but I don't remember what I did with the floribunda.

    After posting my previous reply, I remembered you had been skeptical of the ID of the Bulbo odoratissimum I once sent you. What's weird is both came from the same person. I'm still inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt because of his reputation, but it makes me wonder.

    Don't focus on color. I don't think they cover as much of the spectrum as Masd. infracta, which can even be blue, but a floribunda can be anywhere in the yellow-orange-red range.

    hey Bruce since your interested in these guys, what temps are ideal for the cool growing ones? my basement is staying at about 75 under the lights during the day with a bit of a drop into the 60s at night while its 100+ outside. think i should be able to handle some of the cooler growing species?

    I gave up on them, although I think the low indoor humidity of winter was a bigger problem than the warmth of summer. And mine would get into the 90s. But a week like we're having now, with muggy nights barely if at all below 80 can be deadly to cool and cold growing orchids. With the cooler temperatures you can provide in summer and maybe terrarium space in winter, you should be able to overcome the problems I had and even grow the cool and cold growing ones.

    I don't know who sells a blue infracta. I'm pretty sure I've seen a photo of a blue one, but the closest I came in a google image search just now was purple. Still a nice color. I think the person I sent mine to was collecting all the different colors. I can remember he taught botany or biology in Memphis, but can't remember his name.
