This was one of my first orchids almost 25 years ago...sadly when I went to college it succumbed to my mother's brown thumb...

Very nice! You're all making me wish I could smell it. Honeysuckle is one of my very favorite floral fragrances, and to have an orchid with a similar fragrance would be delightful!

I have this one also. I have to say I do love these big frilly blooms. Lovely blooms and good luck. I am guessing that's an orchid show?

Finally starting to fade after 5 weeks in less than optimum humidity! This is the longest Cattleya flowers have lasted for me!

5 weeks is a good amount of time for this type of hybrid.
