Rhyncholaeliocattleya Haruko Kanzaki

I knew I had one but it took until yesterday when I watered the hanging plants to find it.

This plant is an example of the best outcome of backbulb culture. It started with two backbulbs with a small amount or roots. I sprouted and the resulting pseudobulb was almost full size and grew a very nice set of roots of its own. Not only that, but it sent up a spike.

Now there is a new growth starting making it the perfect time to re-pot. I will be contacting the commentor about this today to see it he is still interested. If not, it will go up for sale next week.
