    Default Cattleya Janice Evans ''Sweet Sixteen''

    I got this beautiful pink Cattleya from the Hamburg Orchid Show in 2009, It was a nice sized plant with plenty of pseudobulbs. The orchid had a partial tag so when I asked for a name the guy just made one up LOL he said it was Lc. Pink connection ''Abural'', I searched, but found no info or matches, the partial tag said ''pector'', finally after much searching I found out that the plant was C. Claesiana x C. Prospector i.e Janice Evans LOL. I really am amzed by the way the vendor just made up the name LOL. Anyways here are the pictures, the flowers are beautiful, but I am a bit disappointed as there are only 2 flowers and the plant has about 30 pseudobulbs !!! May be next time.
