    Default Green Cattleya

    I really like green Catts, and I think the color on this one is just outstanding with that raspberry lip. Form isn't the greatest, but I'm hoping those petals will get a little more rigid on the next blooming. This is first bloom, (Lc. Hausermann Gala X Blc. Hausermann Jade) 'Boonserm'.

    I'm generally not a huge fan of the Catts, but the stark contrast between those colors is striking! I may have to convert to 'floof' for this one. Is that cross available from RVO?

    LOL! Christopher, that would be a good one to convert with, I think. Actually this is the first chance I got to take some pics of things, and I just updated the website. I only have two left, and I'm keeping one, so there's one for sale! It's in the Cattleya section and is considered a "standard," so you'll need some room for it and bright light to get it to grow well.

    That one's sure a looker, Louis! The yellow in the throat pulls the lip and the petals together nicely! Definitely worth a rebloom!

    Oh yes I like this one too. Love the contrast of the lip and the petals.
