Another exciting mini cattleya species in bud. This is the rare yellow form of cernua. Another week to open! The anticipation is killing me 😂.

Grows inside the large warm (19-23C) terrarium, mounted on cork, next to fan. Wet in morning, dry by evening.

Very jealous, mine has sent out a flurry of new roots, but not even a new lead yet!

Don’t worry! Roots keep them alive! The new growths come all year long... so won’t be long..
Fingers crossed! Very excited to see what yours looks like! I have a “typical” form that just loves to bloom (twice a year), but I have found this yellow strain, and the super round-flowered Japanese strain to be extremely sensitive to the way I look or breathe in their direction!

You know the saying of geishas .... 'just one look'!

Beautiful! I am going to show mine your photos, perhaps I can shame it into blooming. Congrats on that bright touch of sunshine!

So beautifully petite and delicate. I love the bright orange ones, but this is very special. Congratulations!
