This one is blooming out in the g.h. in semi-hydro and in high light. It's very fragrant and has a citrus scent. I do love the interesting color splashing, but this is probably the ugliest cattleya I own. It's leaves grow floppy and somewhat twisted and not attractive at all. Good thing the flowers are so nice!

interesting pattern of light/bright yellows. Enjoy. BTW do you keep them in the G/H or bring them into the house for everyone to enjoy?

Thanks all.

I bring them inside, unless I've got so many in bloom I don't have room indoors. Right now I've got probably 15 to 20 plants in bloom in the g.h. because I'm full up inside the house. Since these only last a couple of weeks, it's nice to have plants to constantly rotate.
