    Nice color, Zainal. I think those will develop larger bunches of blooms eventually.

    I agree with you when my friend gave me only 3 bulbs but now more than that

    I wouldn't have guessed Cattleya type by looking at that form. Great color and I do like that form too!

    This is one of the parents of the famous hybrid SLC Jewel Box (now Cattlianthe Jewel Box, since Cattleya aurantiaca is now Guarianthe aurantiaca, but whatever )

    A very good form for this species, Zain. Often they don't open very well, as the species has a tendency to self-pollinate and does not need to attract polinators.

    Sad but at least the color very attractive so far none of them self pollinated after 4 times bloomed.
