    Talking florida sunset sheath split!

    Just last night, I noticed the very tippy top of my new cattleya's sheath split open! This is so cool to watch the bud inside get bigger....i only recieved this plant a week ago and the bud was about less than halfway up inside. Now its so close to the top, AHH sorry I cannot contain the excitement!
