There are two more buds still to open, but I couldn't wait and I had to go ahead and post it now. I'll update when the other two open 🥰

Thank you Roberta! The color really is amazing. This is her second bloom. I don't think I posted a picture of the first one because the flower was crippled, but the form on this one is really nearly perfect. The other two buds have popped, so I'll post a pic in a day or two once they have fully opened.

I haven't kept many of my big standard Catts because they just take up so much space and only bloom once a year, and this one is particularly large and a bit of a rambler, so it really does need a lot of space, but I think it's worth it. The color speaks to me as well. I wish you could see it in person, because the color is actually even better than it is in the picture.

Beautiful! Orchids always look better when seen in person. Photos never seem to do them justice.

I did the same thing...I now have smaller Cattleyas that will hopefully bloom more than once a year.

Wowza!

That is simply gorgeous Jeff. I can see why you tolerate its rambling nature. That color... can only imagine how it must glow when up close and personal.

How long do the blooms last?
