I was over excited to order my first cattleya. Akatsuka did not disappoint. I got a real beauty w/ 4 buds. The first bud that opened is now brght yellow in color while the ones just starting to open are lime green. Amazing! Smells like lemon lime too! Akatsuka is A+++.
I had called and talked to Kamaile, and she picked out my specific orchids I wanted; I got the best, most PERFECT specimen! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!! This one took my breath away; 5 buds, huge plant in perfect condition, it bloomed and went through it's 'color change', JUST PERFECT AND BEAUTIFUL!
These are the most attractive, healthiest orchids I have received from any nursery, but plants from Akatsuka are always excellent. I am very pleased. Plus, the orchids bloomed beautifully within three days of receiving them.
Blooms lime green then turns yellow. Just like described. Swear it even smells like lemon lime
