Default Lc. Tropical Pointer 'Cheetah' HCC/AOS

I got this one today from a local grower.
The whole thing is barely 8 in tall (flower spike), so this is by far the smallest cattleya hybrid I've ever tried.
There are a few pbs but this is its first flowering.

Sooo cute!
The color combination really cheers me up every time I look at them.

The flowers must have just open as they are supposed to turn orange with time.

Faint but nice fragrance as well.

I just love that one! I just got one as a medium seedling from Clouds a few weeks ago. I re-potted it only to find 4 tiny seedlings in the pot. Clouds told me they are still 'medium' seedlings and about 2 years away from blooming. Seeing yours makes me impatient for mine to bloom!

It looks much better in person.
It's one of those that pulls you in.

You will love it when yours bloom.
