    Smile Min.Cattleya Indoors

    This is a Min.Cattleya that I've had under lights inside my apartment.It seams to be very happy with many new growths.A lady at a local nursery thought I was crazy to be growing any plants inside.She said that she could not be much help,because she had never grown under lights.She was puzzled that I want to grow Cattleya indoors.I know that outdoors in this area of the country is great orchid growing conditions.This is the only Cat. that is indoors.

    It looks great! A nearby orchid nursery marks their catts as being suitable for windowsill/light growing or not, so all of them obviously don't need a greenhouse. :-)

    This looks like a very happy catt indeed! 3 new growths is a very positive sign. I'm always happy if I get 1 new growth!!
