I have a large Cattleya that I got from Steve Christoffersen a few months ago. It had a tag that read "4067" and was supposed to have come from Carter & Holmes more than 20 years ago. It was in an 8-inch clay pot where it had been for several years.
The plant has finished blooming. It is growing out of the pot and although there are quite a number of pseudobulbs there is only one lead. I decided to divide and repot, trying for large divisions if possible.
Normally I would not spend much effort on an un-named Catt hybrid. This one is different. The flowers are huge and beautiful. It looks very similar to C Pamela Hetheringon but the lip is different enough that I would not be comfortable calling it that.
Re-potting will be a challenge. It has a very tight rootball and I had to break the pot to get it out. No matter how carefully and slowly I work, there will be lots of root damage.
