    Sorry, this post got buried in the pile! Nice pickup!

    It should do well with standard Catt treatment: good light, let it dry between waterings, fert regularly at 1/4-1/2 strength.

    Good find. You should probably re-pot it to make sure all is okay with the roots. Cattleyas like to be potted tight in their containers. Good luck!

    Cheers,

    Great price!! I suspect it is mislabled it is a Lc not C. It has a beautiful flower to boot. If you do a google search for Lc Secret Love, you will be able to find a pic of it.

    Yes. there are several snakes in various tanks. All are Ball Pythons
    This is a male Pastel Ball Python, and I have about 9 others of various sizes and ages.

    Lovely ball python! I have four that I keep in my classroom. Two females that I got last year and one male I got the year before-hoping to get them to breed when they get old enough, and then was given another male this year.

    They are such nice, trouble free snakes...my students really like them.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Nice to meet Mr Pastel Ball Python.

    I hope he appreciates that the more bargains you pick up, the more money there will be to spend on him. That's assuming you don't buy full price too!
