    I like how the flower appears to be floating unattached.

    I was trying not to ask, as it may seem rude, but I can't help myself: What is growing in there with it? It makes such a striking floral arrangement. But there is a part of me that wants to pull it out. :confused:

    It's a tillandsia, I believe. I think they look pretty nice together.

    Yes Marni, its a Tillandsia. I have let this be since it doesn't affect the plant and they do well together :)
    But I know the feeling of itchy fingers when it comes to ferns, begonias and other invasive things. ;)

    That's funny Marni. :) I like the effect -- but it took me a minute to figure out that first photo. My first thought was -- there is no way a cattleya flower has foliage like that. :)
