    Hi everyone,

    My Cattleya is in bloom again. Unfortunately, one spike with tiny baby buds was destroyed by ants. The plant has 7 new growths, and only one of them is in bloom! (buds on another growth were destroyed by ants). We are experiencing an unusually warm and humid winter with thunderstorms etc. I guess my lueddemannianas just miss cooler and dryer period, this is why they cease blooming nicely this year.
    I have two lueddemannianas in bloom now. Three others started to develop buds but quit.

    Just stunning, Nat! It took me a little puzzling out to figure out you had it mounted - it must love it! Such beautifully-shaped blooms and fabulous lip. Congrats. How often do you have to water/spray it?

    Hi Maura,
    I'm so sorry for such a late response.
    I purchased the plant in 2009 and never re-potted (or remounted) since then. I can see that Cattleya likes the coconut.
    This year it had 20 or 21 blooms.



    The last flower



    I hose it daily. hot days more often.
