Cycnoches loddigesii is a species of Cycnoches found in South America.

DescriptionEdit

Plant blooms from late summer with ten 12.5 cm wide flowers.

DistributionEdit

Plant is found growing in French Guiana, Surinam, Guyana, Venezuela, Colombia and Northern Brazil

CultureEdit

Grow in intermediate to warm conditions with partially bright light. Water regularly during growing season and when plants drop leaves during dormancy reduce watering. During dormancy only water about twice a month to keep pseudobulbs from shriveling. Resume watering normally when new growths occur in spring. Plants can die easily from over watering. Plants are usually grown in bark with perlite, cork, full sphagnum moss, and tree fern. Female flowers will often be produced when high light and low moisture is present. While male flowers are produced in shadier situation of higher moisture.
