I have a special love for this one- the magnificent contrast that every example seems to have from the strong orange ones to the soft brown and olive like this one seems to be.

i obtained this plant in a unique and awesome way- i was at home depot and cruised by the orchids as i always do and i saw a big tray of 6" catt types in a try looking BEAT UP...like wilty and sad and i looked them over and found this plant and another (a sweet primary hybrid i cant recall atm) and figured for the $19 each it was worth quarantining them and seeing if i could save them.

i guessed it was a case of the product did not move in time and the medium fell behind the plant and the roots were weak- i repotted them in a rocky and super open mix and set them in the Q area.

once i saw healthy new growths i relocated her to the main catt bench and she took off

this is the first flower (3-4 year after acquiring) and there are between 10-15 new growths that are some stage behind this one


enjoy

Probably due to high humidity.
There are several varieties. This one, I can't recall, but it has "Bronze" in its name.

I would have tipped on them enjoying the sound of outdoor crickets but that would be dismissing DC as the grower so without him they would have ended in the bin.
I would have tried to haggle for a discount though.

The green dot in the center helps with the contrast so yes a great flower

And much of the credit you deserve is by recognizing the best conditions for that species.
