    Cool Blc Copper Queen and other Summer Cattleya orchids

    I'm super busy so I'll put these into one post. The cattleya are beginning to pop in spite of the heat and rain. Another wet spell is coming in a few days so i've been spraying everything and doing random checks for rot. So far so good, although I do have a few flowers that aren't quite right. The Blc Toshie Aoki hybrid is amazing. The plant arrived with a nice collection of bugs hiding in dry matter on pbulbs and I ended up having to do major cleaning on it. I ended up holding two pieces, neither with many roots. I didn't think either would do well so I put them in minimal potting material in a cheap black pots and put them into the shaded transition area for newly repotted plants. To my shock both sections sent out a single bud immediately. I won't leave the flowers on for more than a few days so the plant can concentrate on roots and new growth.

    Perfection is showing off again. A storm knocked off the second bud... I put it next to Toshie to show the size of the flowers. Also; Toshie didn't come out exactly right, i'm guessing it's a little stressed. When it's hot my cattleya sometimes don't form just right.

    Blc Copper Queen is one of my best bloomers. It will have 9 flowers when the last bud finally opens.

    What was wrong with the Ascocenda Crownfox plants?

    both the ascda's have done poorly for me, one just bloomed for me recently, but both have the most sorry looking roots while the rest of my vanda types are going root crazy
