    Default Yam Queen Adelia 'Kiilani'

    Not my best photo ops but three spikes and 10 flowers which is a major accomplishment for me, since I have a terrible time getting my Cattleya Alliance plants to do much of anything but take up space!!!!!! Some of the flowers have fallen prey to our local insect population... I summer my catts out on the driveway in my new portable greenhouse, since this is the only place of any kind of major sun I have!

    I'm always willing to adopt. Especially when they're as beautiful as this. Great job Howard.

    Just kidding of course Howard. You worked way too hard on that one. I have to kid you because of the "Just take up space" comment.

    I always welcome some fun on the forum... makes me feel good. Thanks, and you'd have to agree, however, that it does get somewhat frustrating growing these guys and gals and not seeing any flowers. I'm hoping locating them out on the driveway might make a difference this fall/winter. Oh, and not to this topic but I hope to have E. obesa from seed from my plants and maybe even a capsaintemariensis in the next several months... any interest?

    Very frustrating. I have one Catt I've never seen bloom in the 3 years since I bought it. Something always seems to happen to the buds. They didn't clear the sheath, blasted, or been accidentally been knocked off. As to your question, Yes interested. Thanks.
