Cattleya burana beauty

Of all the various genera of orchids which exist in the world today, the one which I love and enjoy the most has to be the Cattleya. There is something very exotic and spectacular about the luscious and flamboyant blooms, many of which are large and fragrant. It's no wonder that the Cattleya is often referred to and is often used as a corsage. 

The burana beauty is one such example. They are also amongst the easiest of orchids to grow, with most being very tolerant of poor conditions and neglect. The fact that mine flowers without the need for fertiliser is proof of that!
