I bought this plant on eBay from orchids-forever. I had a very good experience and am totally satisfied with the transaction and the plant I received.

Lc Santa Barbara Sunset 'Showtime' HCC/AOS is the cross Laelia anceps x (Laelia anceps x Cattleya cinnabarina) developed by Santa Barbara Orchid Estates. It is a very beautiful flower.

The first two pseudobulbs on the right (top picture) were put down in the pot. One of them died and the other sprouted. The new growth developed at the surface level and the rest of the plant grew from there.

What was a scrap becomes a salable asset for the grower and a bargain for me. In a couple of years I will divide the plant and have a salable asset of my own.
