    Default Cattleya Jewel Box

    This little beauty has been in our family for years. My daughter in law had one from somewhere which has grown and bloomed happily for some time. She gave me a start, which somehow ended up being two pieces, I gave the larger one away, its growing well, and kept the 1 p-bulb start. It's taken it 3 years to get from 1 bulb to blooming size and I was rewarded this spring with this gorgeous bright red (fades a little to a more orange tone as the flower ages) compact Cattleya. The flowers were about 4" across, the plant is just so happy and reliable and cute! The parent has flowers pretty much all summer.

    It's pretty accurate of the color as the flower ages just a little, its pinker when it first comes out.
