    Beautiful - go Valery!!!! Are you growing it outside??? I have given away my cattleyas, except for four, and I don't think they're getting enough light inside by the window - I'm trying to get them to hold on until I can get them out on the deck.

    Congratulations on your first earned bloom!!! I'm coming up on a year of growing a couple of my orchids, and when and if they spike, I'm going to be ecstatic. But I know that sometimes it can take years for orchids to readjust to a new environment, so kudos to you! You have made that catt very happy.

    Thanks ya'll! I would think I just gave birth or something I'm so happy about this one. Specially since I sunburned it right after I got it.
