    Default Cattleytonia Why Not 'Because'

    I have had this orchid for several years, it constantly blooms for me at least twice a year if not more. This is the best blooming so far.

    I have just gotten a new 100mm macro lens so this is my first posting with this lens, I have also included a picture with my 60mm lens, enjoy!

    Nicely Done and Flower count is quite good for this Hybrid.

    I like any orchid that blooms more then once a year. I will repot when the blooms are done, it needs it.

    Great shots of a beautiful orchid ! That 105 is one heck of a lens, of course good technique helps too. Well done Jack.

    Great shots of a very attractive plant! Quick question Jack. The pot that you have that one in. I've only found a few of those in thrift stores. Are they something made in your area?

    Beautiful, Jack! Can you tell me where you have your Cattleyas outside? A lot of sun, a little sun? I only have one and it hasn't grown much and has not bloomed for me yet.

    Thanks for your comments!

    Chris, I got these pots at a local nursery, they are made in Mexico. The two suppliers in my area now carry these or something close so you should be able to find them.

    Sheryl,
    I have mine close to direct sun but under 60% shade cloth. The way the sun moves now it shines into the open end of my shed and gives more sun but this one does not seem to mine the extra light. I would say move yours to get more sunlight.
