    Default Blc Toshi Aoki and other Cattleyas currently in bloom

    I have four nice catts in bloom right now. They always do so much better in the summer and fall because of the time they spend outside.

    First is Blc Toshi Aoki 'Pizazz' with four blooms, one just beginning to open. The flowers are not as large as I've seen them, but that's probably in part because there are four blooms and not just one or two.

    Next is Lc Indigo Dawn 'Blue Bird' x Mood Indigo 'Darkest.' These flowers are larger than they look in the photo and there's another couple coming in a new growth on the back of the plant. It seems to bloom twice a year for me.

    Then there's a noid that is probably an epicatt--small flowers for a catt and elongated pseudobulbs. Anyone who recognizes it, please let me know.

    And last is Pot (Erin Kobayashi x Marlene Lundquist) 'Carmela,' and this is the first bloom on the plant.

    All four are fragrant, some more than others.

    Okay, I have a GREAT idea, Janet: You should totally pack up the Lc Indigo Dawn 'Blue Bird' x Mood Indigo 'Darkest.' and send it to me. That is all.

    These are all so pretty! Nice growing and blooming!

    cheers,
    BD

    I would suggest that the middle flower is a Caularthron (formerly Diacrum) bicornutum hybrid of some sort - based on the curved column, spotting on the lip, and the shape of the petals and lip. The pseudobulbs(medium sized and tapering) and leaves (two) look a lot like a "Epicat".

    Pizzazz is a floof that I never did succeed in blooming before killing it. Rather bummed about that.

    Lc. Chat = (L. albida x C. bicolor) L. albida contributed the form... never would have guessed that. It's a relatively old cross-1953. A better known offspring of L. albida is Caulaelia (Dialaelia) Snowflake (L. albida x Caularthron bicornutum). Learn something new every day. (Just curious-what led you to your ID?)
