    Default Cattleya gaskelliana ('Victoria Caballero' X 'Rosa')

    is opening now.
    I posted some pics of last year blooming here:
    http://www.rv-orchidworks.com/orchid...vorites-4.html

    The plant was repotted last Fall. I guess it does not like plastic pot because all new growths are much smaller that older ones. I did not change anything else in the culture but the pot. However, even smaller pbulbs can produce nice flowers. I don't know yet if the flowers are bigger than last year's but they are not smaller for sure. There are three more sheaths to bloom.

    My plant two days ago:

    Today in the morning


    Now:





    I will show more pics in couple of days when the blooming is in full strength.

    Oh please! I love your orchid photos, Nat. I wish my cattleyas looked half as nice as yours. Nice growing.

    As usual your orchids just blow me away. They are always beautiful and your plants so healthy. This one is simply stunning.
