    it is beautiful. the way the colors blend into each other, it's like they were brushed onto the petals by a master artist.

    As a matter of fact, so far, yes! I will post a few of the others that I haven't done yet this morning.

    The RHS now calls this a "Cattcyclia", but it's really an oldish primary cross of Cattleya intermedia and Encyclia tampensis. It has, at the moment, two blooms and one bud, but an enormous number of new growths and quite a few sheaths that I hope will develop soon. It's in a hanging basket where the roots just go everywhere. I don't know if I should put it in a larger basket after it blooms - but it sems so happy as is that I probably should leave well enough alone.

    At the moment it is better to leave it as it is.
    Personally I would make two plants, but would wait until the plants growing cycle starts.
    Amazing how beautiful this primary crosses sometimes are.

    This green pinkish color on the petals are so elegant great you already transferred into a big pot.

    Thank you, Zain - yes, I transferred it ("up-potted it) to a pot 1" bigger until I could figure out the best way to grow it - the smaller pot was badly bruising the new growths.
