    Love the shape of this cattleya orchid bloom. It is almost a perfect circle. Nice choice.

    cheers,

    I agree, the shape is very nice. And the colors are beautiful. What genus does the G of Gct. stands for?

    Nice round form ... not an uncommon feature with Ctna. Any fragrance to this one, Roy? (Another nice feature of many Ctna.)
