    A very exciting little cattleya , as you can see from the plant pic' it is growing very strongly with a pot full of bulbs and leads - six of them just completing, all with spathes ; the first just opening the first of two flowers.
    Of course all of them may not make it, but even half of them in flower togethwr will make quite a show .
    I see that the grex has been awarded lots of times with lots of different named cultivars - all with flowers of better shape than mine; this particular cultivar ROC is not among them ( on the Orchidwiz site anyway ) but no matter, the lovely clear strong colour is the same, and perhaps mine will improve after a repot - this one will burst if there are many more new growths !

    What an amazing yellow color ! and I also like the simplicity/elegance of the shape! will you move it to SH when you repot it?

    No, I am doing so well with my Cattleyas in conventional systems that I cannot imagine doing better in S/H.
    I have used t in the past with success, and maybe will try again with it one day, but not yet.
