    Cool Cattleya (no id) Pretty in Pink & Purple

    When this plant was purchased it had no tag and lots of bugs. The flowers were so beautiful I decided to try and save it. Once every nook and cranny was rid of bugs, the plant cut into two and the bad roots removed; one section went into a clay pot and the other section went into a wood basket with no potting materials. This is the first blooming for the section in the clay pot and the basket section has a few buds coming along now as well. I am so excited, this is the best blooming for either section so far.

    What's wrong about being a NoId? It's beautiful wether it has an id or not.

    There is absolutely nothing wrong with it being a noid at my house. I just whine sometimes for no reason...lol! I adore this plant and love that I managed to find something so amazing for such a nice price. Someday this one will be having pieces sold on Orchid Bidz. It grows fast...
