    Default Cattleya Fire Magic 'Nora'


    Cattleya Fire Magic Orchids have been robust compact growers and reliable bloomers for me. Most Fire Magic plants, I have seen, have been bold yellows and reds often with splash. The color of this plant offered something different. This is my first bloom and I am very pleased.

    Beautiful colors! Small cattleyas are becoming very popular these days. Many of them bloom more than once a year and they often don't require as much light as larger catts.. Your's is very nice. I have heard that this is a popular hybrid.

    Thank you for your kind comments. In a perfect world I would grow species Cattleyas and historically significant Cattleyas such as Bow Bells. These are my favorite Orchids. However, even with a sun room I have the restrictions of a windowsill hobbyist--- I simply do not have room for more than a few large Orchids. I truly appreciate the work or hybridizers who work so hard to develop mini and compact Cattleyas. These individuals make orchid growing a pleasure for individuals like me who always need to find room for "ONE MORE ORCHID"

    Very nice. People who grow outside run of of room, as well. You have to be more selective.

    How big is the plant, Dean?
