    Default Cattleya Pradit Spot 'Black Prince' ...it bloomed for me!

    i love cats and vandas...but to be completely truthful...as one of my more lazy profs used to say, "horticulturalists tend to have the highest home plant mortality rates" ...and because of their bitchy "i want daily misting" attitudes, i have seen my fair share withering away...for shame... but thanks to the overhead irrigation system i installed last summer...ive had some success!!!



    PS- does that slight pinkish serrated edge mean this isnt a pure 'black prince' ... i know, there goes shane again with his halfassed ID's!!!

    Gorgeous orchid bloom!! I believe the id is correct as there can be slight differences in each variety - even from the same flask.

    Cheers,
