Project 2016:  Cattleya walkeriana
Default

I just went to the nearest Lowes and, amazingly enough, they had bag babies ($6.98) and, even more amazingly, they had a Cattleya walkeriana 'Carmela' seedling. It wasn't in the greatest shape but it does have a new growth so I am not too worried. I am soaking it in Seaweed solution overnight to give it a boost. Comparing it to my older C. walkeriana, it is going to be a few years before it blooms.

Maybe not, but it has a lovely new growth started, so eventually that wrinkled leaf won't matter

Leafmite, show us a picture of your older plant if you can. I'd love to see it.

Here it is, the C. walkeriana I bought a couple of years ago from Al's Orchid Greenhouse. I find this one to be a very easy grower so I am hoping the new ones will follow suit. I haven't bloomed this one, though. :|

Leafmite do you think it was too small or maybe it needs higher light to bloom? You have so many s.bulbs and it looks so healthy.

Yes, it is a seedling but I think this last set of growths should have been blooming size...or maybe very close. Without knowing anything about its parentage, it is difficult to say. I am not too worried, though, it will bloom eventually.

Of course you can use one you have had for a while but you need to post the pictures, tell us how long you have had it, how you are growing it (how it is potted, etc.) and tell us where you bought it. That is part of the project.

When this one won, I was honestly not intending to buy another C. walkeriana but when I started checking out the sites to confirm they had them.... Then to see the one locally, in a box store! I am impressed you can resist getting a new one.
