First ever Cattleya in bloom
Default First ever Cattleya in bloom

Hello everyone,

This is a very interesting moment as my first Cattleya ever has bloomed! It was bought almost one year ago and it was sent me with 2 regular size flowers. Now it has only one bloom that is so big that is almost strange. I will try to find it’s name.
Size: 19x19cm
A happy holidays for you all.

In many cases, a single bud can get all the attention (resources etc) from the plant - and can result in a larger flower than for cases where a spike has more than one flower (- constraints in resources and sharing).

Thank you all for the replies.
Rbarata, I’m living in Cascais.
The flower has now a very pleasant scent.
