    Default Slc Dream Catcher

    Not sure what my problem was the day I took these but apparently I couldn't hold the camera still. So apologies for the crappy pictures. Unfortunately, because I forgot about taking new photos and waited too long the plants are no longer in bloom. Anyway, both of these are the exact same cross, but as you can see there is some difference in the flowers.

    IME, this is quite common with Dream Catcher. I personally prefer the one on the right despite the fact that the one on the left holds its flowers more upright. Light intensity does have some impact on flower color. The plant on the left, for instance, actually had two buds. The flower pictured was the first to open. At that time the plants were sitting in front of my SW window. The other bud opened a week or two later after I moved the plants to a more shaded spot where I could better enjoy the flowers. That 2nd flower wound up being almost pure yellow with the red lip.

    Oh, and for those who are curious, Dream Catcher is a true mini -- both plants are less than 5 inches (approx 12cm) tall.

    Both are lovely but I am with you on favoring the right one. Need to look for one.

    I want to get one too. I have a spot on my windowsill where I'm sure it'll be very happy.
    In that first picture they look like little puppies peeking out of a crate...esp the one on the right...

    Great colors Paul and thanks for sharing. Yes the one on the right. Something about the shape that just draws the eye to it.

    Very nice blooms, Paul. I too prefer the color in the one on the right.

    Cheers,
