    Default Pot Haw Yuan Gold 'Oz'

    Opened yesterday, just sufficiently set to bring in to replace a previous plant whree the flowers are now going over , and brighten up the dinner table on this dreary dirty November night in Southern England -Mind you I must not turn uip my nose at one inch of rain in the last 24 hours - my water tanks are full of lovely fresh clean water again.
    Back to the cattleya ( which it probably is, since Potinaras are essentially sophro,laelo,brasso,cattleyas - and all of those are now back to being cattleyas again- perhaps - if the botanists have not changed their mind this afternoon - I haven;t detected any scent so far ; unusual for a cattleya, maybe it need the morning sun - which I'll hope for.

    One of the most beautiful yellow catts.How big are the flowers of this clone of 'Oz' ? I've only seen the 'YK 2' variety which is huge, about 7 ins if grown in our highlands. Those grown in the lowlands are normally smaller, hardly 6 ins.

    I just went and measured ; 5 inch natural spread , i.e. without pinning the petals flat. It is interesting the differences according to where grown - different culture , inevitably - light ? and warmth too, no doubt. Not that any of us has much choice - we have to grow where we happen to live.
