    Default Ctna. Why Not 'Roundabout' AM/AOS x self

    Here is a cute red orchid in bloom. This is one of the first orchids I ever posted on OrchidTalk. It continues to bloom on every pb. I love it. It is completely root bound as you can see in the first photo, but it seems happy.

    No wonder it's so amazing, it's eating it's wooden basket! What a beauty! Of course, your greenhouse must contain magic dust or something, your plants are just amazing always! The ctna. bunch are pretty little things....
    Thanks for sharing

    It sure seems happy and such a clear red bloom. Mine was doing so well for several years and this spring it decided to DIE with out any warning. Go Figure.

    The flowers are so cute, and I like the color contrast. And another spike on the way! Wow, good growing!

    That is so beautiful!! I had a ctna 'why not' that I purchased in FL a few months ago, and it really did poorly when I brought it home and it died right away...I was so sad. Bruce, how do you care for this little guy? Same as all the others?
