    Definitely in my list of little sweeties. Flowers not a lot over 2 inch across. Perfume - don't ask, I'm never very good, and having been a bit poorly with a virus ( tested negative , btw) I could only just about smell my bacon when it started to burn this morning....
    I'm currently on bench 2 ( of 4 ) - pus all the hanging plants - being checked over in my main greenhouse, for the first time for 12 months. I'm amazed how good they are. Some of the catts seem to have made the best bulbs ever. Surprising what some serious neglect can do....
    Repotting will follow after Xmas, as and when appropriate for just about every plant in the house I guess. Well, better than watching tv .......

    Love the shape and color of these flowers. In life there is a never ending to-do list.

    It’s a great orchid, multiple leads and always putting out flowers. Grown in a windowsill, summers out on the porch.

    Beautiful blooms. I love it, Geoff! Good luck with all that repotting. I have so much I need to do and so little motivation to do it lately.

    cheers,

    This beauty is actually one of the first hybrids my boss ever made. He named it after his mom. It should be Cattleya Crystelle Smith Great plant!

    The pink tepals with yellow lip is very interesting. A reverse combination, such as yellow tepals with pink lip would also be very interesting. Interesting colour combination in C. Crystelle Smith.
