    Default Rhyncholaeliocattleya Lucky Strike

    This is one of the floofiest and biggest Cattleya orchid that I have around. Beautiful colour, wonderful scent and a reliable bloomer year after year make it one of the must haves. The flowers are easily 10 to 11 inches across.

    I got this one has a blooming size plant with 8 pseudobulbs in 2005 from Singapore, now I have 4 plants each with 8+ pseudobulbs. Below is one of the divisions blooming earlier this month.

    Here is the mother plant, it was re-potted last year, hence only one of the growths is blooming.

    The pot next to this pot is a standard 12 inch pot, just for the size comparison.

    Now this is my kind of orchid! The only reason for me to look forward to the cooler/cold months here is that more of my floofies like this one will be blooming. I bet the fragrance is intoxicating!

    cheers,
