    That's gorgeous color.
    This is supposedly a warm/hot growing Cattleya. It must grow well where you live Zain or am I wrong?

    Thanks Bruce I wish next season he will give me more flowers.

    At initial phase I wondering why he refused to flower than i realized he needed more bright light to induce bud formation now most of the new pseudobulb will give me at least minimum one flowers, yup I agree with you warm growers thanks Arne.
