    Really nice flowers Geoff! Great plant Cathy. Who doesn't like skinneri? There is something about it. I don't know what it is but I think most catt growers have to at least one. I am working on getting a good coerulea and am hopeful about a large seedling I have.

    I use those very large fern fiber baskets for the really large Catts and Laelias plants. They seem to really do well in them. I don't get rot in the center of a plant in a pot that sometimes happens with specimen sized plants.

    Very beautiful, Geoff!!! I too appreciate what you bring to us. Cathy, when you get tired of all that plant, you can send me some.

    I have a skinneri 'alba' that is slowly maturing a growth. It was in really rough shape when I got it though, so I don't know if it will flower for me or not.

    I love C. skinneri. I think the blooms are adorable. Can you tell me what makes good form on these guys?

    I have a C. skinneri albescens `Debbie' FCC/AOS. But in all honesty, one of the best of the skinneri tribe I have is a peach colored guatemalensis.
