Lc Maui Leopard

The cross:

Cattleya aclandiae x Lc. Maui Plum 'Volcano Queen'

 

Cattleya aclandiae and its hybrids are notorious for hating to have their roots disturbed and subsequently I try NEVER to disturb the roots. I simply placed the orchid, pot and all, in this wooden basket with no additional mix. I did firmly secure the pot to the basket with wire so it would not move around. I have had this for two years; this is the first bloom for me.

  

Blooming in my greenhouse 2012.
