    This is a first bloom on a seedling that I purchased two years ago. I am quite excited as it is the first cattleya that I am blooming on my window sill culture

    Thanks everyone for your comments. I do have a weakness for green orchids and I have been trying to collect them. At the moment I have Lc. Greenwich 'Elmhurst', Cym. Valley Zenith, and another noid yellow/green cym. Still on the wish list: Eplc. Mae Bly, and Epc. Siam Jade.

    Very nice flower!!

    I have question regarding the photography though.....I have a flower (Phal, actually) in a very similar green that is currently impossible to photograph accurately. Any tips on how you got that nice green tone in your first photograph?! Would be very interested to hear!

    Thanks Bruce.
    @ hcubed
    I didn't do anything particular. I used a simple digital camera without flash, just with natural daylight. The first picture was taken with 'auto' mode, and the second one with 'ISO' mode. I used a tripod which I find enhances the quality of the picture. Hope that helps and you can get a nice picture of your green phal that I believe we will all love to see
