    Talking White Cattleya - C. Carol Ackerson in bloom

    This cattleya is an oldie that has been with us a long time. We have divided it many times and sent pieces all over the place with friends and family. I am growing this particular division into a specimen plant because I would like to take it to a show some day. It has the most perfect, white cattleya blooms. We lost several divisions of this orchid over the last couple of years because of scale. Somehow, this one has stayed in the clear. She really needs a repot. Her blooms this time are not as grand as usual. We skimped on the fertilizer and that is probably part of the problem. She usually has blooms all over, but these are the only two open right now. I include another video I posted on youtube. The music will not be for everyone, but I think it sums up Carol. Enjoy.

    She sure is a pretty lady, such class.
    I think you're about a decade behind on repotting this one
    Love the videos you've been posting!

    Holy moly! Those roots make my mouth water

    She looks good bd? Maybe you'll want to grow here in a ball shape and let her crawl around the pot?

    Do you think it would work with her growing around the pot? I am concerned that the center will start dieing off if I don't repot her eventually.

    She's a Hum Dum Dinger for sure!!

    She's beautiful, and I loved the video and the music. Made me smile!! In fact, I watched it twice!!

    Don't know about you, but I'd be scared 'bout half to death to even think about repotting her. She seems quite content right the way she is.
