All Cattleyas listed under this category are in sheath (buds forming) or swollen buds (ready to open) unless otherwise noted.  We do our best so that these orchids plants arrive with buds or just opening so you or your recipient are able to enjoy the blooms as it opens.  If you see the words "Plant Only" in the title or description, this means that this plant is not currently with buds or in its blooming season.  Please read the product description as further details about the flowering stage is also noted there.
