New pseudobulb on Cattlianthe Jewel Box 'Scheherazade'

Cattlianthe Jewel Box 'Scheherazade'

     The new pseudobulb that I first noticed in late March, is now close to mature.  The leaves are already long enough, and they just need to open.  In the meantime, I've spotted a brand new growth along the rhizome.

     This new growth is about the size that the other new pseudobulb reached after one month of growth.  If it keeps growing at the same rate, it should be nearing maturity around February or March.  This may be too late for the Spring/Summer bloom cycle, but I don't know enough about how these things work to be certain.  The first new pseudobulb should definitely be ready to bloom in early summer if everything goes well.
