It’s been over 5 years since this last bloomed for me. This plant was one of my very first cattleya orchid, won on eBay in 2007-2008. From a seller in British Columbia called Mooie exotics. I’ve never been able to track down info on the seller. Maybe someone here knows them.

Blooming was a challenge this round as the position in the grow room has lights tracking from two different sides. I should have turned the plant completely around earlier to avoid the leaf running between blooms. What can you do.

Enjoy.

Handsom, beautiful, and elegant all at the same time! She looks to have good substance also. It never ceases to amaze me when so many species can be combined and still produce such “simple“ elegance.

Nice one.

Looks like strong purpurata or warscewiczii in the background. So may need higher light to get more frequent bloomings?
