    Default Bc. Maikai X Cattleya Triumph

    I have had this one since December 2014, it has had 4 spikes this year but the first 3 did not do well when we had over 3 inches of rain several weeks ago and as you can see we have had more rain in the last 2 days.

    Thanks for your comments! I am hoping that next time I will get all the spikes to bloom, I can't only imagine what it will look like with each spike with 2-3 buds.

    This rainy weather is wreaking havoc on my orchids too! I also lost 6 of 8 blooms on a dendrobium spike.

    It does not look like it's going to stop for awhile with chance of rain between 60-100% thru Monday. It looks like it is going to be a wet weekend at the Bonnet House Orchid show this weekend!

    Uh oh Jack! Does that mean more orchids? I'm jealous. We only have one orchid show a year around here. You have the pick of not only shows but nurseries as well! And what a beautiful orchid you have here!
