    Floofies are fun, aren't they? There are a lot around here at Christmas, and many of them are fragrant - I have to confess they make me a little crazy, but that's nothing new! Good growing, Vicki! PS. How's summer in the greenhouse in Alabama? It's pretty hot here in Atlanta - my deck orchids are all catts and 2 encyclias. They get very parched, but I guess that's the way they like it.

    Hi Maura..
    Yes, I was so excited when I saw buds...and when it bloomed, I was like a little kid (so you've not got the market cornered on crazy). My first floofie! I've got another catt I've never seen in bloom with only one bud (noID) so we'll see.

    Geez, summer here in my greenhouse....hotter than hot! I try everything I know, but I just can't keep the temp. decent in there. Thank goodness for good air flow.

    Bigtime stormy today, (may be in Atlanta, too ??) much lower temp. in gh, very high humidity (88-90% or so) but no sun.

    I'd love to see all of your orchids. I read your posts a lot, looking for photos, too.

    Happy growing and thanks for your reply...
    Vicki
