Brassocattleya Maikai,(Brassavola nodosa x Cattleya bowringiana) easy to grow in Puerto Rico

This common hybrid is easy to grow outside in coastal Puerto Rico.  If given regular fertilization and plenty of sun it will bloom abundantly.  I found that as my plant grew larger it would tolerate more and more sun exposure.  I think this is due to many, very closely spaced pseudobulbs which appear to protect one another from any excessive sun exposure.  This plant can grow into a specimen plant if given proper care and grooming.  My plant became heavy!
