Summer orchids: Lc "Tropical Pointer Spot"
« on: July 13, 2017, 05:00:24 PM »

Several of my orchids are in bloom, and one of my favorites is this one: Laeliacattleya "Tropical Pointer Spot". It's a very reliable bloomer, July and December each year for the many years I've had it in my collection. Its flowers are rather small, but dainty, with a wonderful spicy fragrance that appears each morning from sunrise to approx. noon. This summer it really let loose with a multitude of blooms. Unfortunately, we're having a heat wave, which doesn't bode well for the flowers, as they're already showing signs of an early die-off. Such are the woes of the orchid hobbyist.  :-\

Here's a studio photo showing TPS in all her glory.

Thanks for viewing. C&C welcomed.
