    Default Cattleya Bob Betts 'Margaret'

    I'm afraid Margaret is a little worse for wear... I have been 'misting' lately and well... it seems that water and developing buds are not a good mix...



    I love the classic beauty of white flowers and when I got this a year and a bit ago, I was totally excited to see it flower. And I'm not disappointed either... with better culture, I'm sure the white will come through much better (unscathed)!

    Bob Betts is such a great plant! Mine is so big now I am dividing it and sending part of it to live elsewhere. Mine is The Virgin, FCC/AOS.

    LOL, Diane! Is this the forum nickname you've long desired? Another gracious lady once bore this title...

    oh yes, Cin... the perfume is actually very lady like... not overpowering and it is like a mix of citrus and honey!

    seems like such a big flower for such a small plant.
