    The 'hair pig' name is so crude yet appropriate.

    I like this one. The name leaves something to be desired, but love the digbyana influence.

    This cattleya is a bit too hairy for my liking but the color shades are amazing.

    Cool orchid. I have to say though, if I owned one and my non-orchiding friends asked its name, I'm not sure I'd tell them "Golf green 'hair pig'.
    They already think I am a bit odd...
