    Default Cattleya eldorado 'Rafaela Fantasia'

    This is a division I got about a year ago that originated as a jungle collected plant. This is the first time it's bloomed for me.

    Hi,

    I see you're in NYC also? I'm in Manhattan. I have two greenhouses on my terrace. I'll take some photos later on today if you'd like.

    Congrats on blooming the eldorado, Lien! It is a beauty. The white is so pure towards the center with the air-brushing of the violet towards the outer parts of the petals. Wonderful!

    Cheers,
    BD
