    A couple of weeks, maybe 3. It's a real water hog when in bloom, and if I don't keep up with it, the blossoms fade more quickly. The fragrance this morning was pure delight!!! The second set of buds is opening.

    After the blooming that began this thread, Diane divided her Catt. As many will recall, hers is a division she got years ago from her mother, who got hers as a division from a top orchid breeder, who got his as a division from the person who won the FCC award back in 1960. Well, we traded plants, and I got the division! I feel like I should be joining your family come Thanksgiving, Diane Thumb!

    It has two happy looking buds swelling quickly. Still a week away, I'd guess...but it won't be long!
