    Default Lc. Maui Plum 'Volcano Queen'

    I kept coming back to this plant for over an hour when Connie and I went shopping. They wanted way more than I wanted to spend. I finally caved in and bought it. I knew I would have made myself crazy for not buying it.
    Very fragrant bifoliate.

    I reckon I would have buzzed around it too Cathy, then bought it. Very nice. Looks like a lot of C. schilleriana in it, without looking it up. Poss' some aclandiae also.

    Guttata, Roy. Cattleya guttata x Cattleya Summerland Girl (Cattleya tigrina x Cattleya Grandee (1937). There was a time I pretty much only grew bifoliates.
    Thanks.

    You did very well, Cathy! It is better to get what you want (within reason) than to regret life's little decisions later. It is a lovely orchid and will bring you much pleasure. I love the color and wish I could enjoy the fragrance. SO pretty!!

    Cheers,
    BD
