    Had this plant about a year and a half. I was glad to see it finally decided to bloom. I have two more buds that are about to pop on it as well. The fragrance is lovely..

    Lovely Clint! Makes me wish again for smell-o-vision. Also wish mine would finally decide to bloom, have had it just over a year as well, but mine looks like it's not as tall as yours.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Really gorgeous! The perfect shade of peach that I have been struggling to find. Wanted to ask if you're growing in hydrponic pellets but without the s/h.

    Just grown in Hydroton with regular waterings. No semi-hydroponic pot or resevoir.

    It sure looks like your catt likes it that way!!

    I have been trying this out on a couple plants and do worry a little that the stones won't retain enough water. How often do you water?

    Beautiful flower, though!

    I water all catts in Hydroton once a week in winter/early Spring and every 4-5 days in Spring-early Fall. However, this is in general; I mostly watch the p-bulbs..when they start to shrivel a bit...I water. After quite a few years of growing, I can touch a catt and know when it needs to be watered.
