    This cattleya looks to have a very round form. Please do update with a new photo when it is 100% open.

    cheers,

    The fully open flowers. Didn't perform as well as hoped. I think the high 30c - 40c+ temps didn't help. Its not a big plant either, its in an 80mm pot !!

    Guess it was just too hot. It seems the petals reflexed a bit. Still a lovely bloom.

    BD, I think the petal reflex is normal but not this much. The heat was unreal. The coolest I could keep the OH was 40c on the worst day. It was well over 50c outside in the sun.

    Heading for the heat again at end of week. Now have 3 major fires going in state. Not near me fortunately. Newest 2 are also threats to communities. Major activation of fire fighters to both.
