    Default My first bloom - Slc Hsin Buu Lady

    This is the first bloom I can claim. It had two spikes when I bought it. The first had large blooms and the second spike was still growing and produced smaller flowers. This spike was in the sheath when I got it and it did nothing till I moved it to a spot with more light. Even though the spike had started when I picked it up I am taking credit for it.

    All credit to you - both for blooming it and choosing it. I know the bloom is actually darker than the colour in the photo. It's really very difficult to reproduce the actual colour in the photo.

    i can see the strong Laelia influence in the shape of the bloom, and the Sophronitis (if coccinea, its now Cattleya; makes no sense to me!) in the colour, then the Cattleya in the ruffled lip....very nice!
