    Default Are we there yet- (Catt. Buds)

    I've been so excited for the last week because my Cattleya's buds emerged from the sheath. Now, I'm growing impatient and hoping they open SOON...although not tomorrow because I have to work. Picky, aren't I???
    Here are the pics as of tonight....

    Good luck....so far one looks like it's sticking it's tongue out at you. My guess, that'll be the one that opens while you aren't there! The color of the buds is amazing, the blooms should be gorgeous!

    No worries, I administer an orchid forum with rules. I get hate-email on a regular basis. LOL.

    I think you most certainly have a few days if those photos are from today. I look forward to the bloom shots!! (Don't keep us waiting, Kate! )

    It could be up to a couple of weeks before they fully open...I think.

    growing orchids can definitely teach us patience! It is easier to wait for buds to open than to wait for a plant to mature to blooming size, LOL. Looking forward to see your blooms! Just don't fiddle or move the plant at this time. Too many of us have broken spikes, knocked off buds or caused a spike to blast due to our over loving nature
