C. Percivilia

Here is the echo of another blogger from South Florida: Tog's blog on Thursday December 27th described this orchid, C. Percivilia "Summit," FCC/AOS which stands for First Class Certificate/American Orchid Society. In case you do not know, C. stands for Cattleya, a genus of 42 species of orchids. This plant came from Tog's backyard, but it now is growing in mine. It has 3 spikes and 7 flowers today. Thanks Tog.

Yes, it was a gift from Tog about a year ago this month. I am very lucky that I receive so many orchids as gift from so many friends, to the point I have to turn them away, having not enough time to really take good care of them. Orchids in Miami cannot be killed easily, but they need tender loving care to reward you with their flowers.
