    Default 1st Flower Cattleya

    Cattleya loddigesii 'Perfect' x C. jenmanii Fantasia 'Charlie'

    1st flower on a seedling purchased 4 years ago. Well worth the wait I think.

    What a fantastic shape. I guess I'm seeing the wooden panels from the new greenhouse right?

    Part of the roof, the wall and a shelf Arne, I got so frustrated building the darn thing I stopped posting any pictures of the process. Major pain in the patootie. This is a view a few months back of the completed project. Not a greenhouse for my climate at all and will have to do some reconstruction when it stops being winter. There are a lot more plants in it now.

    Maybe not perfect to you now but you seem to know what to do about it already. Nevertheless, it looks really nice.

    Looks like a good mix between both parents.

    Looks like you have the larger version of the Williams heater I just installed.
    Greenhouse looks nice, mine came with grooves below the outside covering for a second layer of panels, works great!

    I think I'll be putting a second layer on Mike. The kit came with 2 tubes of caulking but we'd already used 22 and bought 24 more before the rains came and we had to stop.
