Slc. Mem. Alvin Beggman

Cheerful and bright, I found this miniature Cattleya on  the discount bench of a local nursery. This little plant can outgrow its home rapidly as it seems to be continuously producing new growths and blooming from new sheaths. Some color variation occurs on the lip, and I have seen a variant with more pronounced red makings which I prefer. Bright and moist conditions are best.
