Default Cattleya schroderae

This is a plant I recived as a freebee from an orchid gower in Napa when I purchased a Catleya warscewiczii from him. The flowers are great: not only are they beautiful but they have a nice strong fragrance.

Nice freebee. I had a similar thing happen when a vendor accidentally sold his last plant of one I had ordered. To compensate he sent me a Dend. Little Sweet Scent. Then he found me another one like I had originally ordered.
That's service!

Sweet. I just got one myself, but it probably has a year or so till it blooms. I'll just enjoy yours for now.

What a stunning bloom... and free! That's a vendor that I'd have to put on my love forever list.
