    Default Catts In the Greenhouse

    I had two more catts open today. They aren't opened all the way but I couldn't help snap their pics with the sun shine today.

Klehm, several emails with pics but never have had a response.... so I'll just enjoy this catt... a portion of the name is still readable but even with a partial I' can't get any search results...









    While I'm not 100% certain, this guy is my avatar. This year the flowers aren't as deeply saturated with color....

    I really hate to be the bearer of possible bad news....but the first cattleya looks like it may be virused as evidenced by the color break and petal characteristics

    The BLC. Alma Kee 'Tipmalee' is beautiful. I can see why you chose it for your avatar. It is really a wonderful combination of colors and floof!

    Cheers,

    Not bad news... When I saw the flowers open yesterday, that was my only thought.....VIRUS! I know what I probably should do with this plant but it is hard to trash such a pretty flower...but the down side is the health of the entire collection....so enjoy for now.....
