I bought this plant from your nursery about a year ago. When it bloomed this year, the colors were striking. It also has a deep sweet fragrance - a real winner!
I've bought a number of Oncidium/Odontoglossum hybrids from Akatsuka and have always been impressed by the quality. This is the first Cattleya I've bought from here, and I am blown away by what a nice plant it is. It's bigger then I expected for the price, it arrived in perfect condition, it's incredibly healthy with lots of thick roots, and the leaves free from blemishes, and the buds (also in perfect condition, no bruises or nicks) look like they should be opening any day now. I'll definitely be buying more Catts from Akatsuka. Thanks so much!
I purchased this orchid September 17, 2019 in bud, when it bloomed it was BEAUTIFUL, it changed color as said, I love Akatsuka !
