    Default Cattleya Pornthip 'Jac' & Blc Alma Kee

    These 2 cattelyas were the only 2 among 6 others that survived the rains long enough to have their pictures taken. C Pornthip is not much known outside Thailand and neighbouring countries - the flowers are big, about 6 inches across. Blc Alma Kee usually blooms with 2 - 3 flowers but this time the second bud was damaged by the rains.

    Those are both beautiful cattleyas! Blc Alma Kee 'Tipmalee' was my favorite yellow catt for several years until it developed a virus due to my careless use contaminated shears. I plan to buy another one. Your's are obviously well grown.

    The rain has surely taken a toll on these beauties.

    Yew, I'm such a fan of white catts. This is a lovely one. I like Jeff, think Tipmalee is a winner.

    Guess I'm a color person, because although I like them both, I LOVE the yellow and red cattleya! Betty

    Thanks everyone. Yes, I like Alma Kee 'Tipmalee' too. I have other yellows with red lips but the yellow on Alma Kee is the most pleasant, and though I have various clones of Blc Chunyeh, the nearest to the pleasing yellow of Alma Kee is Blc Chunyeh 'Tsen Wen'.
