    Default Blc. Hawaii Stars

    This little cattleya always blooms 4 times a year. It has a light fragrance. It's been in this basket for many years now. There's one bud that still hasn't opened on this side and another spike with buds on the back side. I posted a picture the last time it bloomed but I think it's a little nicer this time.

    Does the basket have any media in it or has it ever had any media? I am moving many of my orchids to baskets so trying to determine if media is needed
    And what type lens are you using to take your photos?

    Thanks!

    Love this one and as you said the frequency of bloom makes it a real must have. Mine has bloomed twice in the last 4 months and has new growths with sheaths forming. Yours is lovely and the photo is great.

    Miller, This basket has large chunks of cork bark in it (about 1" - 2" square). It doesn't seem to have deteriorated at all.

    Amazing and healthy plant! And of course, a very lovely set of flowers. This plant was one of my early favorites. I have a nice one outside i'm wishing would bud out. lol Great job!
