    What a beauty. How long did it take you to bloom from an original cross?

    I like the light tinge of color on the petals and sepals. The splash of color on the lip is great too.

    Default Cattleyas,Oncidiums & others- in memory of Mr Kurashina

    Dear Hiroshi, you're actually the second Japanese orchid grower I've come in contact with. The first was Mr Kurashina [who sadly passed away suddenly last year], a retired chemical engineer from Tokyo, who had made the Cameron Highlands in Malaysia, his second home. He told me that he chose the Cameron Highlands just to pursue his love of orchid growing because it had the ideal climate for the the types of orchids he grew[15-26C and rain year round] .Just so that others could share in his happiness of seeing his orchids bloom he would display them regularly in a souvenir shop in town.And every time I went up to the highlands I would never miss going to the souvenir shop to view his display. Sadly now I and other tourists will miss both him and his orchids.

    I'm posting a pic of one his orchid displays and may he rest in peace among his beloved orchids.
