Igor, take some credit Very beautifully bloomed !
Great shots of a lovely catt.
Igor, that one is my first and favorite Cattleya hybrid to re-bloom for me, it is called Cattlianthe Loog Tone, in that photo actually there are 9 flowers on a single spike, here is a link where you can see a bigger image
And another link when it was blooming on two growths. It is not a big floofie but I love it.
What a cheery little beauty - good job!
Very pretty. I dont do well with standard Cattleyas. =(
I am so so sorry to hear that. Mine grow hanging in pots from the cross-bracing of the conservatory where I guess there is brighte but evenly shaded milky light. That must be what suits them. My miniatures hang from the trellises on the wall, as high as I can find room, but they don't flower as reliably: maybe it is not as bright there? The bifoliates are also difficult even though they too hang up high...so I don't know.
I know how lucky I am to have a conservatory, but it is still not all plain sailing! The funny thing is that even though the winter night minimum goes down to 10 Celsius, my Paphs love it and grow like topsy! Anyway- I am full of admiration for people who have the knack of growing and flowering without having a glasshouse of some kind. (How lucky are folks in the tropics or Florida and so on: they can use the back yard!)
