Calanthes not yet potted, late floweringDendrobiums, Catasetums, Chysis, Cycnoches, and Lycastes thathave finished flowering will all need attention. Damp down the floors and stages early in the day, as soon asthe temperature rises by natural heat. Pay great care to shading, and ventilate with equal care.Admit air chiefly by means of the lower ventilators; top ventila-tion tends to dry the atmosphere quickly and severely. Leave thelower ventilators on the lee side of the cool houses open a littleall night. Odontoglossums not in flower may be sprayed very lightlyoverhead in the morning on all bright days.
