Home > Store > Plant Families > Lycaste
Lycaste habitat extends from Mexico to Bolivia. Many are enchantingly fragrant. Though most are medium to large plants with very large flowers there are at least two small species. Since they grow in mid to high elevations and are at times even subjected to nighttime frosts, they were considered low light growing plants. We now know that to get the best flowering Lycastes require high light, good humidity, and intermediate temperatures. The hate to be dry. To varying degrees they all loose their leaves before flowering. Anguloas are closely allied to Lycaste and contribute their tulip look and broad sepals to the stunning Angulocastes.
