Default Cattleya nobilior size comparison

Hey all,
I posted recently about two nobiliors I've got blooming. I mentioned that the coerulea is giant, but I should have included a photo showing exactly how big it is compared to a "normal" flower or tipo. Anyway, here's a good comparison photo.

This is great! You really can't tell unless you are there, or have size comparisons like these. All are gorgeous!

It's fun to be back. I try to come back when I have time, and I hope I last a while this time.

I always like to see a hand in the picture. It gives me a better perspective as to size. Especially when showing compact or mini plants. I don't have much indoor room and will be concentrating on a few of the smallest types in the future.

oh wow, I didn't realize how large those coeruleas were. Thanks for including a scale/comparison shot. Now I'm doubly impressed with the blooms!
