Heavy, waxy petals and sepals, shockingly vibrant lip, light citrus scent when in sun. Really reliable plant! (didn't have time to take a new picture before bringing her into work, but blooms exactly like last year - 2 on a stem)
Surprise! I don't have this one. Nice!
the colour combo sure is awesome! and you're excused with the haste of moving this plant to work... after all, we all want to be able to see our 'chids all the time when they are at their best! I've just moved all my flowering plants into the study where i spend most of my time

Very nice - I love the waxy petals.
You're brave bringing them into work - everytime I bring one in to work it seems like people feel the need to touch them until they wilt early! I should smack them next time? No?

I usually swith out plants after 2 weeks because office environment has poor light and practically no humidity.
If you think you can cut off a piece without setting the plant back, then I would like to have a piece. If not, it might be better just keep the plant as is. They bloom and grow better like that.
BTW, lot people I know when they look at green catts, they think the blooms are fake until you tell them and they are all shocked! Hehehhe!
Hoa, you really do like to shock people don't you?
What's wrong with that? They are the naive/clueless ones. Hehehehe! They are whom I call 'the non-believers'. They just don't believe things that pretty could be real!
