In spite of my difficulties growing Pings, I can grow orchids really well. First, a picture of a Laelia angereri x L. katsukiana:
This is a primary hybrid of two rock laelias from Brazil. They can grow well outside in Arizona, as long as they are given some shade in the afternoon, and a spritzing of water around 4 or 5 pm to simulate coastal fog that rolls in. I also own several other rock laelia hybrids, I love their succulent leaf structure, their extremely small size and their tough constitution. These have been outside since march, and the flowers have been open since early May.
Next is a Brassovola nodosa, mounted on a piece of cholla wood:
Its got two flower spikes with six flowers on each spike. I'm hanging it in the sky light of my living room right now. Its another tough orchid, this one can grow on a mount in regular house humidity, although much of the year I still suspend it over a humidity tray with my other orchids.
Here's a close up of the flowers:
I also grow a Bras. "David Sandler" (Rhyncholaelia digbyana x Brassovola cullculata) and a Brassovola acalus. I may try to cross the rock laelias with the brassovolas to make some tough and vigorous hybrids one day.
