:X Not looking forward to it getting giant.
I need to find some more compact Catts- I love what I've seen of Potinaras.
Decided I can't keep oncidiums happy, so steering back towards these guys.

I ordered my plant from Oak Hill today. I tried to order one from Andys, too, but my internet connection messed up. I'll try again tomorrow. Of course, as long as I was paying for shipping.........
And since Cattlyea intermedia was a runner-up, how could I not order it, too?

Miniature Cattleya and Laelia species are plentiful, just gotta know what you're getting and where to get them!

Laelia anceps with spike is about 3 to 4 feet tall. Without the spike, the plant is probably around a foot-and-a-half tall.

The flowers are about 3 inches in diameter. From what I gather, they're fragrant.

A miniature Laelia species is Laelia alaorii. Such a cutie. It gets no larger than 3 inches tall I'd say. Stays pretty compact. I'm going to see if I'm able to get it by mid-July. It's an intermediate grower.

L. anceps is a beautiful plant, and so is C. intermedia.

Enjoy them, they're really nice!

I love my C. intermedia! Very sweet little guy.

Here are pictures of my new L. anceps, kind of lanky looking cut off from it's mother plant- that thing was huge.

Pictured next to the Den. aggregatum I got for comparison.

@Angela- made a thread about my little Den in the Den Alliance section.


I'm sure everyone elses will be a lot more aesthetic than mine!

Its here!!! YAY! UPS man brought it before I left for work this afternoon! And boy is it a biggie! I was expecting mounted as in on a stick or something... hubby says this is what they mean by "pot mounted" as it seems to have a hook for hanging. Here we go! It seems healthy, no apparent new growths but some remnants of old flower spikes so I know it has flowered before... just gotta get it to do it again!

ETA: second pic is the L. anceps next to my new Rhyn for the Warm project.

As I said, much more aesthetic- looking good, grats!

So I tried again to order from Andys online- my internet provider says the connection is not secure for ordering? Anybody else have that problem?
Boy am I anxious to get started!

It must be a setting in your computer. I have never had any problem with there site. Just call them by phone. You will most likely will talk with Harry and he couldn't be a nicer guy to deal with. Good Luck
