Cattleya dowiana aurea

I hope Christmas finds you well and your orchids bug-free.

Cattleya dowiana aurea

This year I got myself 10 Cattleya dowiana aurea seedlings. When it comes to gift giving my wife is generous and thoughtful. Her gift this year was very nice but not orchid related. She leaves me to do that for myself and it works out better all around.

This purchase is a bit of a gamble since it is from an eBay vendor I don't know who has a 99.4 score. The picture I have here is from the listing. The seller implies but doesn't actually say that it is of the mother of these clones.

He promises that they are in 3-inch pots and 4 to 5 inches tall. When I get them I'll let you know about the root system, the most important part of an orchid plant.

  1. That's a nice one I've been wanting for a while. I just got a couple of them from the same seller. Thanks for the tip.
