note: a duet of bellinas, extra nice flaring on the larger plant

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii316/twofish69/IMG_0945web.jpg
note: I have found that I do not find dark blue violaceas that attractive. I prefer some contrast as with this one and its white tips

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii316/twofish69/IMG_0940web.jpg
note: really large scented blooms

http://i267.photobucket.com/albums/ii316/twofish69/IMG_0949web.jpg

This is Zygonisia Cynosure "Blue Birds" - blooms practically on every new growth and when the plant is strong, 2 spikes per new shoot is pretty much standard.

Rex, you are slowly killing all of us with your super gorgeous looking orchids. Welcome back after disappeared for more than a year. :welcome:/> Zygonisia Cynosure "Blue Birds" is really a killer. Have not heard about this genus before. Is this one easy? In my dictionary, only Brassavola nodosa is considered easy. :blush:/>

Thanks, rex... Is it warm growing because of the 'warm-blood' from acacallis parent? I don't suppose straight zygos can tolerate tropical conditions.. There are a lot of beautiful zygos here in OZ though.. If they can survive n bloom, I might consier giving one a try... Anybody have experience with zygopetalum/zygosepalum..?

P/s: Sorry for hijacking your thread, rex.. :blush:/>

BB and PB - this one I consider easy despite having killed two in my early attempts. I just did not understand what this plant preferred. It likes to be kept moist but in a very free-draining medium. I have had success with it in cocohusk/pumice, grown with my oncidiums and watered daily. Fertiliser is adjusted accordingly for this plants quick rate of growth and media.

I have not had any success with Zygos - they are really lovely but although warmth tolerant, they are not warmth loving - there is a big difference I have learned. Zygos would probably grow well in a sunny airconed office window. Zygonisia like mine are quite happy in our warm weather when grown a bit shadier throughout the day - this means you need to give it more hours but less light throughout the duration.
