    Default Blc. Husky Boy 'Romeo' HCC/AOS

    The gold color 1 just stuck out. There were 10 of these yellows and then this 1 gold color. So I had to buy both for comparison. Blc. Husky Boy 'Romeo' HCC/AOS

    Puney or not, I think they are both lovely. Congrats on a great find!

    Puny? Bite your tongue, Richard. They look like they might be just the right size for those of use who are space challenged.

    Love that little dab on the lip. Reminds me of dressup as a little girl - using mommy's lipstick. What a pretty bloom! One more for my list.....

    I was only joking. I love miniatures. I don't have any space at all in my apartment. My C. dowiana looks like a giant amongst all the other ones I have. I'm just too scared to add any gi-normous cymbs or oncs. According to my S/O I've reached the limit at 20 (I know, a "puny" collection compared to some of you), I now have to sell one or more first before I get another 'chid. And of course it happens that someone locally has just deflasked about 900 plants, all phal species... so sad.... what do I sell now.... ahhhh... nightmare.....

    I think it's not so much about the selling, but moving part of the collection to work... therefore you can have more!

    Yeah-there are plenty of ways to get around the selling thing. However, you may need to bump the number "allowed" up a bit where it's a little harder to count! That way you can "hide" some!
