    Grammatophylum This natural genus has about 12 species interspersed through SE Asia, Philippines, Indonesia, and the SW Pacific that have large pseudobulbs and leaves with a long inflorescence that arises from the base of ther pseudobulb and carries many medium to large showy, long lasting, flowers. These plants require space so plan well. A young plant can have pseudobulbs up to 24" and they multiply rapidly. It has been written that the Fredrick Sanders firm in the late 1800's collected a plant off Penang Island in the Malay penisula that weighed one ton. It was so large that it had to be divided so half went to the Columbian Exposition in Chicago and the other half went to the Singapore Botanical Gardens where divisions of it still reside.

Linda's Orchid Hybrid Abbreviations Ever wonder what the heck BLC or Burr or Alcra stood for? Well here's the spot to fix all that, not only are the correct hybrid names given but also what genera are combined to make such a named hybrid. So BLC becomes Brassavola, Laelia and Cattleya , and Alcra. becomes Aliceara comprised of Brassia, Miltonia and Oncidium. Heady stuff this is, as now you can see why it blooms when it does or if it needs a rest or why the leaves fall off. Try it when you buy a new cross.
