    Default Cattleya labiata rubra

    Now I fall in love in Cattleya species previously i thought as a very difficult species to flowers but now based on observation they never failed me to show off his beauties.Currently I have more than 35 over Catts species in my collection so far all doing very well under equator climate.

    Well done!

    C. labiata among others are tricky to bloom if they don't get enough hours without light during night. The risk is always that some light source hits them during the night and then no flowers.
