    Default Rlc. Shin Shiang Diamond 'Tai Young #1'

    This cattleya has gone out of its way to teach me patience. The new pseudobulb was first visible in January 2013 but did not spike until December 2013. Blooms opened in February 2014 - over a year from start to finish but worth the wait. Three additional psuedobulbs since January 2013 so I'm hoping for more of the same.
