    Default Got lucky cattleya orchids!

    I got lucky yesterday at the garden center. My wife had been the day before and told me in the evening that she saw some sign for $5 orchids. When I saw these sitting there only the one had a price on it, the white one and it read $4.98. So I grabbed these three and went to check out along with some other plants. When she rang it up it seemed too high and was told the two unmarked catts were more. When I argued the fact that they were all in the same tray on the same shelf and the only price tag said $4.98 they gave in and said ok. What a deal huh? Any suggestions on potting or mounting these new goodies?

    Congrats! I love deals...esp on orchids.

    The one in the middle seems to have a different name on the tag vs the bag? If so, I'd guess the tag is more likely correct. As for potting, check this out... hopefully it will be helpful.

    Good luck!
