Received in a trade from Raphael (thnx!!)
What a beautiful bloom! So glossy and that lip is totally stunning. Wow, I really need one of these!
Ooh, I like that one. It's an interesting greenish color. Does it smell nice?
What an elegant bloom!
Thanks guys! No scent, unfortunately. Jank - I agree that's an apt description. I like the subtle earth tones a lot.
I'm a huge fan of the understated and this is just perfect. Love it!
Kevin I agree. I can now add a very nice faint fragrance when it's sunny. This is a keeper for sure
Raphael sent you a gorgeous forbesii!
This one of my favorite Catt species. I think I like it all the more for being quite un-Cattleya-like. The colors are very Coelogyne, don't you think?
That lip is to die for...I like ths colors too!~Charm...good trade!
Thanks - I completely agree with the coelogyne-like colors....I was thinking exactly the same thing when it bloomed. It's perfect because I can't get any coelogynes to grow well for me and I love them
