    Smile Cattleya Lulu Land

    This is the second time I have blooms from this one. It lives in my rental table space at our local orchid GH in Louisville, Colorado.

    Not the best results as it is a single bloom. But it is a nice bloom that has a great fragrance.

    I've never seen a Cattleya look like that and I find it quite interesting!

    BTW: What is a table rental space? Are you renting a table inside a greenhouse that somebody owns?

    The bench area gets their normal watering schedule in the GH. They also fertilize. I just come in and check them, do any other care they need and let 'em grow. I just can't deliver the light they need at my home. The main reason I don't buy Catts too often at this point.
