    Wonderful! You will love the color shift. It is one of my favorite RM crosses.

    That is lovely. Lots of nice blooms. How often does it flower?

    Thumbs up Rebloomed Under Lights

    After the first blooms faded.This plant was placed outdoors for about two weeks,until the squirrels started another round of Attack & Eat Orchids.Most of the small cattleya were moved inside underlights.These blooms are the first Cattleya blooms inside underlights for me. Comparing these blooms to the original blooms at the time of purchased.These blooms are smaller about 2 1/2" W x 3" T. The second bloom just opened this morning.Happy to see a little color after all this time. Take Care,Rich

    That is cool, Rich. I love all the spots! The colors are so cool too. Glad the squirrels did not get this one!
