    Default Cattleya Bella del Caribe #2

    This little one has bloomed its first three times in the last year. Each time itís looked different. I think the shape has improved over time. Plant 6Ē tall. Largest bloom is 2 3/4Ē this time.

    My other half says there is a faint fragrance. I have chronic sinus issues so I canít detect this one.

    Ido love plants which have flowers bigger than thepot they are grown in. And what sensational colouring. You have turned me green, Robb.

    Thanks for the nice comments. Iím in love with this one. So much so that I just purchased four more from a remake of the same cross with a different (and I think better) Beaufort parent. I ended up getting two really good ones out of my original six and the other four were culled or didnít like my lowest temps this first winter in the grow room. And Geoff, usually I am the green one, in more ways than one.

    Very nice! If the camera is correct, these are exceptional colors.

    Aha, I thought I could see Beaufort . My favourite little plant.
    But I think I must stop buying more catts- I am just going through all the plants updating my database, and I see so much repotting needed very soon ( like, now ) and very many will need larger pot sizes. Enjoyable, but if I make my gangways any narrower ( wider benches) i shall have to go on a starvation diet to be able to make my way along them without knocking plants to the floor.
