Default Rlc. Li Jiuan Dancer...OH Nose 👃🏼 😫

Typically I stay away from large floofy Cattleya types especially pink ones...but I was starting to feel left out, like everyone was a member of the “Pink Ladies” except for me.

So naturally when the orchid expo came to town I bought the largest, floofy-est and most pink hybrid I could find 😂

I ended up finding a lovely somewhat compact plant with healthy roots and two beautiful buds wrapped delicately in styrofoam sheets that looked to be unscathed by the flailing hands of the many enthusiasts.

I must admit I like it much more than I thought I would, especially when I woke up this morning to the fully open blooms and what reminds me of scented garden stocks (Floral with a strong peppery note).

But as my luck would have it...one of my favourite attributes of orchids and even more so the cattleya alliance. The cute little nose of a column that really makes an orchid a orchid is completely and utterly deformed and mutated!!!

I’ve searched endlessly to see if this is a common issue, or whether or not it is possibly something that might go away.
But I cannot find a thing about it even on the entity we call Google.

Just wondering if any experts or fans of the floofy cattleya club can give me any insight before I decide to return my pink jacket and stick to what I know 😜.

Very Pretty, although it wasn’t an issue with colour. It does look as though your flower also had an abnormal development in the column as well. As the column seems to be fused with the lip in yours as well
