    A huge flower this maybe 4 ½ inches or even bigger, natural spread. Not my growing , although my plant (now) - I won it as a raffle prize in my Orchid Society monthly meeting a few months ago. Grown by the late Colin Carter , a coelogyne specialist,and a much missed member of my Society.
    I shall have to repot it on the new growth , and it is one of these difficult things - the spacing between the bulbs will call for a big pot - too big for the roots to fill ; maybe I'll try and find a narrow seed tray and use - roots don't go too deep I think.

    Looks very cute and excellent photography. I would mount this instead of potting as the roots don't go too deep and seem better if they are mounted

    Geoff, I found the solution to the huge plant potting. I love the bulb pans for the largest catts. No matter the size of the pot I try not to give them too much "depth". After pulling clumps of Encyclia off a tree that was down and looking at the matt of material I sort of changed up my approach to potting. It means they dry out faster and I can water more without fear of rot and usually I end up with a mat of roots I would never have had previously. It also eliminates the need for chunks of styrofoam at the bottom. The water lovers go in the plastic bulb pots and the dry types get clay pots. Some might not like the bulb pans "look", but the cattleya I have in them are doing really well.
