    Default Slc Hawiian Beau

    I unpotted this and forgot about it. I think that was about 6 months ago. Throw it into an empty plastic basket. When I rediscovered it it was in shealth so I let it stay. 3" flower

    Seems like it liked being left alone. Very pretty bloom.

    Cheers,

    The greenhouse I was at the other day has their watering system turned off because it's time to bud out his huge cattleya collection! In the meantime the vanda's and some of the others looked awful from no water. I guess they like to go dry once in awhile. And I find that when I dump about 2/3's of the potting materials off my catts, just leaving a small bit at the middle and bottom, they grow way better. As the roots fill in I add a little more stuff....
    And I love that pink by the way...you are lucky that is a very pretty one!
