    Default C. Cherry Song x C. Netrasiri Beauty

    One of my favorite catts. Flowers are 3.5" tall, deep purple tips on the petals and lip (almost looks peloric) with a nearly white center, sepals are pink-purple. They have a very strong rose scent.

    A wonderful orchid trade. Thanks, G!!

    Love that deep purple on the lip & petals.
    I was so drawn in those 3 frilly shapes,
    I didn't get what Gilda was saying about the "3",
    until I saw it right there on the end of the anther/column(?).
    eerie. but still pretty

    just wondering
    how many pseudobulbs does it have before it bloom?
    i also have a cross of Netrasiri beauty, but it's still a baby. I can't wait to see it bloom

    Welcome to the forum, Rainy! Neither of those two members have been around in a long time, so you might not get an answer about that specific plant. But Cattleyas in general need about four p-bulbs to bloom. Fewer doesn't generate the energy the plant needs. Sometimes young seedlings require more.

    When you divide, you always want to leave at least four p-bulbs on each division.
