    Default New Cattleya

    I got this cattleya plant just around the end of last year froma friend, I got the surprise of my life last week when I noticed that it was about to flower, well there are three flowers in all. I have it in a wire basket in coconut husks, coals, some small pebbles and wood chips, watered every afternoon, and about every other week I use a mild fertilizer and Epsom salts, it is in the area where all my orchids are, outside with sun for about three hours or so, but I think I will move this one out of the direct sun Name:  CIMG1058a.jpg
