    Talking Spectacular BLUE Cattleya 8 blooms

    The other Blc. Volcano Blue "Volcano Queen" Orchid I got from Hawaii has
    just produced 8 Blooms from one stem!!! (this one was in a sheath).
    I have never had a cattleya produce so many flowers from one stem and
    am quite proud, esp. because I am told blues are rare on top of it.
    ENJOY!

    Cheers, Michael
