    Default C. Bacti Grape Wax

    This one just opened up the other day. This is one of my favorite Catts. The color in this particular one is very nice, and it has the most wonderful scent. Enjoy

    Very nice! the blooms look larger than I expected, I have put off getting one as I have heard the blooms were small and the plant needs VERY high light. True?

    Thanks all! and yes I grow mine in very high light, but they can be bloomed in lower light. I think that growing mine in higher light has something to do with depth of color in the flower.

    I was admiring this plant in Orchids Through Our Eyes. It inspired me to buy a seedling in a 2" pot. Those bright dayglo purples are awesome.
