    Default Ctna. Why Not

    Hi guys. Cattleyas are not among my success stories so far. I usually buy them with flowers to know what they really look like but after the flowers are gone, I still have to see one that had bloom under my care. Except for this mini catt which I got last year with a spike and now blooming again for the first time under my care. I think one of the reasons would be that this is small enough to be kept inside the house while the others are really big and they have to stay outside at the mercy of the slugs and all other critters Anyway, I like to share it with you as it makes me smile whenever I look at it

    Beautiful. Broughtonia crosses are so rewarding. They are easy to grow and very free flowering.
