Cattleya Chocolate Drop x Ctna Why Not

I am happy it bloomed, because I was worried. This is very over-potted. During the clay potting frenzy I didn't always have a proper sized pot and they are too expensive to buy new ones. I used what I had and hoped for the best.

This plant is in sphagnum over peanuts in a 5-inch clay pot. It are three pseudobulbs and it stands ten inches above the pot.

I still have to make a start on reducing the number of clay pots. I am getting them all situated so that they can get good light.

  2. I just found your blog, and I'm intrigued. I've never heard of backbulbing (a new verb, perhaps), and I will follow along with your backbulb adventures.

  3. Welcome. Orchids want to live and given a little time, scraps that others throw out can become a valuable addition to your collection.
