    Thanks Mary Jane. I've got a back up of this one since they are known for dying rather quick.

    I've killed a few in my orchid growing career. I know better than try with my conditons, so thanks for posting. It is a wonderful species.

    It is a short-lived species in nature. Mine had lived and bloomed for just over five years then it decided to leave me last winter. Nicely done!:clap::clap::clap:

    Thank you everybody !!!!!

    I was there actually today setting up the display for Coalition for Orchid Species and took one of my blooming catts to be displayed at the South Dade Amateur display. Will be there on Sunday.

    The good this is that they meka keikis so the older plant dies and the youger ones go on.

    I've been at the show since yesterday. I helped put together the display for COS and took one of my catts in bloom to be displayed in another society. I was there today and will be there tomorrow most if not the entire day. I'll be with the societies.
