Ly­caste

Arab Times - - WHAT'S ON -

Ly­caste, ab­bre­vi­ated as Lyc in hor­ti­cul­tural trade. Ly­caste habi­tat ex­tends from Mex­ico to Bo­livia. This genus pro­duces large, showy tri­an­gu­lar flow­ers that are waxy and long-last­ing.

More light is usu­ally pro­vided as new growths form pseu­dob­ulbs. Ev­er­green species pre­fer less light. Shad­ing is very nec­es­sary dur­ing the spring, sum­mer and au­tumn as burn­ing of the thin pli­cate fo­liage can eas­ily oc­cur.

These re­quire the high­est tem­per­a­tures, ap­pro­pri­ate over 18-20ºC

In the sum­mer, the plants must be thor­oughly wa­tered and mist­ing is re­quired, in the fall, re­duce wa­ter­ing.
