Default New Cattleyas from Palmer's Orchids

I ordered two Cattleya orchids from Palmer's Orchids in Florida. They were the Dick Smith Paradise and the Hawaii Island Bride. The Bride was a top heavy plant so I had to place it in a ceramic pot with the pot it was in. I can't wait to see them bloom. They also have one new growth on each plant.

Very nice orchids! It is always exciting when the orchids arrive and are in great condition.

Great looking plants, I hope they bloom out really nice. If I get plants that are top heavy, if I don't want to repot right away, I put the pot inside a concrete pot to keep it upright. If the fit isn't snug enough to prevent wobbling, I add rocks or bark to fill in the gap.

I really like Palmer orchids. I live in florida part time and while I am here I go a couple of times. Always nice and friendly.

Default Thanks everyone

Yeah it’s my first time ordering from them and I thought their prices were really good for the color variations thst I found appealing compared to Norman’s orchids. I can’t wait for more progress. I’ll keep y’all up to date.
