Lovely. I looked it up and with Bow Bells as a parent, is there any fragrance?

ES, you mentioned no spots, is spotting a problem for this Cattleya?

Botrytis spotting is a problem for all flowers that bloom in winter! The fungus prefers very high humidity and stagnant air, which is common in a tightly closed greenhouse during cold weather. It can be prevented with good air circulation and warmer temperatures - as a good grower would do.

Yes, the Botyritis does strike in the Fall unless I keep temps above 65F at night. However, in Winter it isn’t a problem, possibly due to the heater drying out the air. Also, I let outside air into the greenhouse on sunny days unless it is very cold.
Diane - it has what I think of as the classic Cattleya fragrance, something that lives in my memory, but is hard to describe.

Lovely bloom but I see you have a new avatar. Care to elaborate?

Thank you for that information! It confirmed my suspicions on a B. Little Stars. I likely bumped it while moving things around.
