    Default Cattleya Blc Golden Tang - my first orchid

    A friend asked if I would be interested in having a division from one of his orchids... how do you say no to that question? 6 months later a new pseudobulb and then three flowers. Blooms lasted a little over 6 weeks. I'm now hooked - 10 plants for various types and counting. Name:  Blc Golden Tang 10-23-12 Resized Image.jpg

    Bob, those are beautiful! You've done a fine job growing them. Congratulations, and thank you for letting us get a peek at them. I really like how you showed us them as they started to open and now in their full glory.

    They were in a clay media when I received the division. I repotted after the blooms finished into a mix of fir bark/lava rock. Here's a pic from 4 weeks after repotting.
