    Default LC Shenandoah "Fairmont"

    This Cat has such a wonderful fragrance as the glooms mature, it is simular to my gardenias that are in bloom.

    Default I am such a sucker for scented pinks!

    Such a huge, lovely, healthy, beautiful and phenomenally well-grown plant. *SNIFF*

    I usually bring the blooming orchids in under the covered patio so they don't get hit with any rain (HAHA) and are somewhat protected from the wind. The big catts will last anywhere from 10-14 days sometimes a little more. It really hasn't gotten that hot yet the nights are still in the mid 60's and days are low to mid 80's.
    BTW I didn't word the intro very well it is one name and two plants. I bought 6 huge plants from a lady that was moving north for $20 each. I have divided them and have pieces everywhere in pots and on trees. Everyone has big fat buds!!! YEA !!!
