    Cool LC Dusty Maid 'Christina' - red cattleya

    Blooming this week is a red cattleya with a dark, dark, lip. This is an old one that we have had for many years. I attempted to use one of Darren's photoshop tricks on it but decided to include a shot of the actual bloom so you could see the real color. I have two of these in bloom. This one has one bloom. The other has two blooms, but they were just about gone when I saw it blooming. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it.

    Lol, no video this time. This one only had the one bloom and the plant was a bit scraggly. A video would not have shown her at her best. lol.
