    Default Catt walkeriana

    No clone name. The plant is ancient and was huge when I got it from a very old nursery. Blooms all times of the year and this is an old pic but it does have a few more blooms than last time (15 this time). Funny thing is, I can get up to three flowers on each spike and have not seen that on most walkeriana. It keeps growing and growing and I keep dividing and dividing.

    That's very lovely, Mike. Maybe you don't see the 3 flowers on most walkeriana because most you see around are whipper-snappers compared to your ancient one.

    I really need a camera.
    You need a GH Julie. Water, fertilize, forget. Pretty soon they are huge.
