    Default Various cattleya in bloom

    I can't take credit for how these blooms turned out as the plants were already in bud when I added them to my collection but wanted to share my good fortune with other orchid enthusiasts. My limited growing area restricts the number of plants that I can maintain so I try to build some variety into the mix. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do the many posts that others have shared with me.

    I've recently started collecting small cattleyas also. Several breeders are now specializing in those small catts so there's a wide variety of plants to choose from now. You must have a good eye because these are some excellent examples of the latest mini and compact cattleyas. Little Toshie has been around for a while and it's one of my favorites. Eplc. Volcano Trick is a plant I've had for several years and it actually gets very large. The pseudobulbs on mine are 26". But it puts on quite a show when it's blooming. Your other two orchids are going on my wish list. I really like them both. I think you made some excellent choices.

    Thanks Jeff. The Yen Surprise 'Seiko' has a little size to it as well. The pseudobulb carrying the blooms is ~ 9 1/2". The bloom itself is nicely proportional to that though at 10.1 cm.
