    Wonderful!! Lovely color - I agree that definately looks like a rich burgandy black pearl! Like the slight tinge of pink in the center with white. It highlights well. Never seen a Fredclarkeara before. Do they have any specific growth requirements? I notice you have it in a basket. I'm definately looking this one up more to possibly add to my collection.

    Cattleya level light. Winter rest period, start watering and feed when new roots are 2-4 inches in length. I have it potted in a fir bark/lava rock mix and set the pot in a basket because, with the leaves, it was very top heavy and this added stability.

    Much appreciated! The info will go in my orchid journal and that will be one plant I'll have to try!

    Oh my... Simply stunning. I have not come across such a dark orchid before, especially one that is almost ebony in tone.
