    thx, Randy, it is one of my faves. It is potted mostly in rock with a little bark in a wood basket.

    Tami, Nice Bloomers ! lol I'm fond of the first one,love the contrast of the white and pinkish/purple and the yellow throat. I'm thinking that my plants outside are not getting enough sun? I have several with sheaths, but none of my cattleya are currently in bloom.
    Have Fun,Rich

    Thx, Rich. The first one is the very first orchid I got. You can see how it was mistreated at first in the 2006 pic! thanks to OT, she made it. It does seem that abundant sunlight is key for blooming. PS - she has a luscious fragrance too!
    Thx, Bruce. Big Momma takes up a lot of room in the orchid house but she is worth it!
