Ah, very good! Thank you for the explanation. I was under the mistaken belief that alba meant there could be nothing other than white. Glad to know better from now on.

Cattleya gaskelliana alba

I don't know if this truly counts as an alba, as there's a fair amount of yellow in the throat. But lots of very well-scented blooms and a great many new leads, so whatever variety of this species it...

Cattleya gaskelliana tipo

Frustrating plant. Even though there are seven new leads, and each one is in spike, only a couple of leads produce flowers simultaneously. And each new growth frequently produces only a single bloom,...

Very nice primary cross. That dowiana lip really is quite attractive. And I like your description of the scent.

Both of your plants look excellent, Roberta. And I really like the mounts--especially since I have a skill for killing anything that I've ever tried to grow mounted (just can't keep them watered well...

No. But it was long ago, so maybe I can halfheartedly claim that it was due to me being a novice with orchids. But it may have been plain mule-headedness, as this was also the time that I convinced...

It looks great. I like the lava rock also. This is one of genera that I've killed too many species of, and now I just admire the success of others. Can't wait to see some flowers.

Fascinating flower. And the fact that the plant is so relatively inconspicuous makes it even more intriguing. I wish I could grow members of this family, but for some reason they seem to delight in...

They all look good, but I think that the third one (the suave variety), for me, has the most appeal. Are any of them fragrant? I had a Cattleya intermedia many years ago that had a nice fragrance....

I agree that they do look very nice growing in your trees. Are they close enough to the ground that you can detect some of the fragrance?

Thank you, Roberta. It's actually already in an 8-inch pot. I should have probably held the plant up to give a better sense of scale. But you're definitely correct: it's time to move it into a larger...

That's kind of what I'm afraid of--that it's not quite done growing to its full potential yet. Still, there are worse problems a hobbyist could have.

Thank you both for your comments!

Cymbidium madidum

I can take no credit whatsoever for either the plant or the flowers, as this just arrived within the last week. And these are, admittedly, not the greatest photos (in my modest defense, however, I...

I don't know whether it's normal or not. Perhaps it's just normal for your particular plant. But as long as it wants to put out more growths, you should encourage this behavior. Good luck.

Fantastic job you've done with your relatively new acquisitions. Can't wait to see the blooms. And they should be (I would think) nicely fragrant.
