    Cool Cattleya Moon Festival X Cattleya Snow Blind

    Several months ago, a friend had to move and brought several nice cattleya to me to take care of. This is my first blooming for this plant and I have to say it is one of my favorites. I need to find out who he bought plants from. I have had no trouble blooming Rich's plants. Unlike some of mine...

    First class pristeen shape, the simplicity goes along way to help appreciate the wonderful symmetry, some very good strong parental influence i bet, says everything for good breeding. Would be great to see this on offer in Europe amongst the flood of compacts and im not blinded by the aclandiae/scillera/prince/queen type crosses. If it is a compact ? Connie?

    often see most of the big Catt fans Florida side (depending on whereabouts on the web ofcourse), its all that sun - grab some tie and strap em to trees, while fans this side equally indulge im sure, they must be to ashamed, frustrated with a poorer limp show. Those that tend to be proud to show off displays are more from the south part of this island. Curiously, since a member pointed out recently of the 'joyous' welcomed arrival of Catt compacts this way, there has been a few mixed/confused observations and not mine as my experience with Catts is little. Many a good fabulous flamboyant shows and displays here and are so hot/ exclusive/ private, high demand/ highly sought after/ glamorous/ rhs royal aos and well publicised glorious photography with superior high prices! no doubt my suspicions became imminent! Damn! ITS........

    Don't buy an I-pad to use for this forum. It won't let me type the name of the species which is so dominant here - it took 4 attempts to get the name walkeriana which is very frustrating- at the first try's it kept changing it to walker rain !

    Geoff, I believe that is a setting you can adjust in your ipad. My android phone was doing the same thing and I finally found how to stop it from predicting what I was trying to type. I had a devil of a time until I finally figured out how to turn that 'feature' off. haha...

    LOL Thank You for making me smile this Monday morning!! World Tour Indeed! I'm afraid my plants would look poorly compared to those you see in shows. Yes my sweet white flower is a compact cattleya. And yes, while the larger floofies are nice, sometimes the smaller flowers for me are just as pretty. This had a second bud that aborted, but even a single white flower like this is enough. So simple, and pretty. I am hoping Rich is following my posts so he can see these! I am trying to think of them as "his" plants so if he ever starts his collection back up I can send his sweet flowering darlings back to him. Not that I don't appreciate the blooms...they are amazing. I just feel like they are still his...
