    Smile Blc. Husky Boy 'Romeo'

    Hi all!

    Another one I found last weekend deep in the cattleya house...i had to buy two catts so I met the mininum purchase requirement for the coupon, LOL...how's that for a spending rationalization?!?!

    This plant is super compact, its blooming in a 2.5" pot...I love it.

    Enjoy!
    ~Becky

    I don't know, Becky -- seems kinda 'puny'. I think you should send it to me & get something bigger for yourself.

    Beautiful bloom, fiery colors. Well done!
    I love the fact that the plant size is small, and the bloom is comparatively big.... Perfect for my windowsill space limitations.
    I should look into those mini Catts. hmmmm ...
