    Default Rlc. Luky Strike

    Yet again my Rlc. Lucky Strike is in bloom. 3 daughter plants and 1 mother plant all are in bloom. According to Orchidwiz the awarded flower had a size of 16 cm, I am definitely sure that the flowers on mine are bigger. I wanted my mom to cut one of the flowers and take a picture with the unfurled flower along with a tape, but she wont cut the flower !

    Just to give you guys the idea of the size, the netted pot it is growing in is 24 cm in diameter.
    These are the two of the daughter plants.

    That's a beautiful classic lavender cattleya. Does it have any fragrance?

    So lovely. Perfect example of what one pictures in their mind when they hear the word cattleyas. Great job!
