    Default Blc. Hsinying Gold 'It's Shining'

    I have had this one for about a year and this is the first time it has bloomed for me. The flowers opened on Saturday. It has three more buds to open on two additional sheaths. It opened very green but now is turning to a lovely yellow/gold. The flowers are large but unfortunately have no scent. Took it to Orchid Society on Sunday and won a first place with it. It is going to become a very large plant. It has definately become one of my favorites because of the colors and flower size.

    Oh you lucky man! I was picking up supplies at the nursery the other day and saw a large cattleya with flowers like yours. Large, yellow with a red lip...only your's is much much better as the one at the store had another color on the lip as well, which ruined the effect. The pure yellow and pure red next to each other like yours is stunning!

    This is a catt hybrid that I would look for. Great color and that fact is has so many blooms and buds is a big bonus. Congrats on your 1st place.
