My Cattleya lueddemanniana is blooming today out in the greenhouse. I got this one off of Ebay several years ago.

Hope you enjoy.

I'd enjoy it a lot more if it was blooming on my balcony! LOL Gorgeous, David! The lip looks like it's shooting sparks.

If you want to trade a piece of that, I have a very nice C. walkeriana v. alba to offer a division of... Send me a message through GW, and let me know.

Absolutely STUNNING! Has it ever bloomed twice in the same year, David? At least once source I've read says it is possible. I'm considering trying this one but have held back because of their rep for needing brighter light than many catts. But are they not smallish growers for a standard type catt? That picture has pushed me over the edge of my hesitancy. Wonderful shape and color.

They are not tall for a Cattleya rather short. I have had them bloom twice in a year. They do require a lot of light to bloom well. I grow this one up near the roof of my greenhouse all year long.
Shop carefully! I have seen some dogs.
