    Gin, did you just take this pic? Am wondering how long the blooms last on this one, since it hasn't been used much for hybridizing.

    Didn't know you were into Catt species!

    Nice Cattleya.

    actually there is a common hybrid of c. skinneri that is very popularly grown in the Philippines

    it is C. labiata x skinneri that is grown in our place. Our neighbor had this plant for about 25 years already.

    I wish i could have a c.skinneri

    Good growing Gin!
    I bough one last year but it hasn't bloomed for me yet
    It did produce a sheath that dried up and never bloomed.
    It has a nice big new growth now so hopefully I'll see some flowers this year.

    I love the species Catts . once they start to bloom they seem to be reliable . the one in the picture has new growths with sheaths don't know if it will bloom again or not , the blooms did last quite awhile .
    Rence I will have to look for the one you mentioned . Gin
