Carefully look at these two pictures, do you see any difference? In fact they are two species. The first one is Bllra Tohoma Glacier "Ithan," the second is Lc. Hallo Wedding "Carmen"(it got first place). The difference is the white edge on the lip and the length of the sepals.
Blc. Hawaiian Lightning "Colorful"(2nd place)
Happiness is finding a new sheath. Bliss is finding a new bloom! Five months ago, I posted a picture of this orchid's sheath. Now it's in full bloom. Isn't it colorful? That's because this cattleya is very unique, the petals have two colors. Most are only one color. Five months is a long time to wait. All three cattleyas have a very pleasant perfume.
