Prosthechea Vitellina

I bought this from Orchideen Kopf three years ago and it’s been called all of the above in that time. God knows what it will be in another three years.

However, it grows alongside all the others in my mostly intermediate conservatory and does very well with the Phals but with more light. Feeding and watering are as always, more when growing, less when not, but that said if this plant is not in flower it’s putting on new growth and most of the time doing both so there is no real rest period. I have dropped it on once in three years and it’s due to get a bigger pot as soon as the root development is well underway. I will move it even if it is in flower as I did before with no ill effects.
