    This is the plant which won me the Cattleya Cup in our Autumn Show on Saturday ; not the best cattleya you ever saw ; not the best cattleya in my collection - but - the best one on the bench for judging ; that's the way it goes in shows.
    Not that I want to run it down ; I bought it a couple of years ago with roots in a poor state, and it made quite good canes/bulbs last year but the flowers aborted. This year, smaller canes, but good flowers. Next year ? Well - do you know any orchid grower who is not an optimist ?
