A split at the top of the sheath developed ----- so just opening the top of the bonnet/hood so that we can all get a look within here.

Pics captured with Canon 70D with old Sigma brand 28mm f2.8 lens, and using 'Magic Lantern' firmware with the peak focusing feature that helps with manual focus.

The split at the top of the sheath was quite small toward the end of yesterday ----- there was no split at all yesterday morning.

This phone-pic was taken with the old Samsung S2 phone.

Sure is rbarata!

The cell activity going on in flower spikes and flower buds for cattleya orchids is really remarkable.

I only just noticed yesterday ----- that looking from the other side of one bud, there is some pinky colour ripple of lip edges showing. I didn't see it before, as I was always looking at the buds from just one side.

I can share the pic in this post here - just to get a view of that other side of the bud!

Judging from my Catts behaviour, they need, at least, one more week.
