Cattleya Lagoon 'Mint Julep' x Rhyncholaelia glauca v alba

Cattleya Lagoon 'Mint Julep' x Rhyncholaelia glauca v alba - Flower photo by Richard LindbergMost Cattleya hybrids do well mounted. I generally prefer mounting for smaller plants, but this one is a medium sized plant on a too-small piece of wood. The flower is pleasant looking and fairly long-lasting for a Cattleya but lacking in "wow" factor.

As we go into winter the next maintenance task will be to re-organize the pots according to watering needs. Sloppy watering can be forgiven in summer but over-watering in winter can kill a plant. I have mostly the same bark medium for Sonoma but there are a wide range of pot sizes.
