    Default Cattleya Tropical Pointer 'Cheetah'

    This was purchased in March with one bloom... and only 3 months later it is blooming again...

    also, I've used the new classification and put it in Cattleya rather than Laeliocattleya...

    so I would like to re-introduce -

    What is the story behind the classification changes? To me, it means a lot of things potentially, from being an intergeneric hybrid to a complex hybrid within the same genus.

    Also, why aren't you posting photos of your plants more often? Your photo is very sharp and focused, and the colors came out well.

    I am sure your plants are very interesting.
