I picked up this little red gem of a Ctna. Why Not 'Comet' x Ctna. Why Not 'Radiance' from Orchids by Hausermann in the spring of 2004, since I always seem to be short on bright red flowers on my plants. It was overgrown in the little three inch pot that it came in, not to mention having more than one lead flowering. It's a miniature hybrid, which makes for a relatively short plant with clusters of 1 1/4" flowers. It flowered in the wintertime and is now flowering again this spring.
