    Default Cattleya Green Emerald (and friends)

    Well here are some of my Catts.

    1- C Green emerald is a bifoliate, blooms light creamy green (fading to white) with amethyst spotting.

    2- Blc Tainan Gold "Canary", large unifoliate, with dry sheaths (I removed the sheath after taking pictures, which was NOT the right order! Not clever.)

    3- Blc Sanyung Ruby "Grand Dragon". Very big unifoliate, with green sheaths. Leaves particularly tough- like bakelite or boxwood.

    4- Noid C hybrid. Perfumed. Medium size, mainly unifoliate ancestry but with two leaves (unifoliate-type distaff bulbs, but biifoliate-type small thin sheaths where the buds emerge at an earlier stage of development than with unifloliates.) One of my favorites!

    Igor, you remind me a little of Elvis Costello.
