Beautiful! 7 flowers on two inflorescences is great, would you be able to post a full plant photo when they're all open? Is this the 'White Lightning' clone?

Northern California, Bolinas to be specific
Wow, love it. Grow them like a Vanda! seems to be working well. Those roots would be all over your benches and impossible to lift out.

i prefer to mount or hang anything I can cause it is all about the roots, and my GH is near enough to the coast that the ambient humidity helps.

Also I very much prefer the greenhouse pictures, 'in situ'. I get a better understanding of the growing conditions and love seeing growing environments, surrounding companion orchids. Thanks for posting those.

That is the way to grow Cattleyas! So vigorous and healthy! If you transfer it to a pot, it might sulk!
