    Default Cattleya Final Touch 'Mendenhall' AM/AOS

    This is the first bloom on this in 3-4 years, back then I was anal on getting all the media out of the orchid when re-potting and I did more damage then I thought and it took this long to re-bloom. It did not turn out as good as I would have liked so hopefully it will be better next time.

    Great colour combination! I did the same thing for a long time and probably killed a lot of plants doing it.

    Thanks Sheryl, I am glad it is blooming again, I hope I don't have to go another 3-4 years before it blooms again.
