    Default Cattleya Mildred Rives 'Orchidglade'

    Bought this from a friend of mine who was selling up most of her plants. I had to repot & divide it as soon as I brought it home, bad roots etc.
    Both divisions still flowered but a month later than normal for it here. One flower each division. Not the best flowering but understandable.

    That's one really stunning bloom - if it also has a fragrance, I'm quite sure I need it.

    Thanks folks. It has a very strong scent, best described as "orchid".
    The mix is 0.25% small bark & 75% coarse perlite.
