Default Speaking of Brassavola nodosa...

.... I have a plant that I bought as B. nodosa. It is a fully grown plant,
I've had it for several years, but it has never flowered. It looks very
healthy.

Other nodosas I have seen have been much bigger. Is there clones that are
smaller? Have I bought some hybrid? Does smaller clones have other
culture-needs, do they differ in any other way I should know?
Which size are your Brassavolas (ahem...)?

Mine has leaves 15-20 cm long, and maybe half a cm in diameter. Others I
have seen has had leaves 30-40 cm, with a diameter of up to one cm.

There is certainly variation among B. nodosa, as to both plant and flower
size. They need a lot of sun in order to bloom. Here in Florida, it takes
a bit of acclimation, but there are folks growing them in full sun.

Good growing,

I have a B Little Stars in a south window and it has 8 bud stalks, over
half of which are blooming now. It seems to be quite happy about 12
inches in from a south window.
