    Cool Laeliocattleya Blue Boy

    I was so excited when I found one of these last year. This is the first time it has bloomed for me. They open with a yellow tinge and then fade into this etherial blue color. I'll update them in a few days so they will be fully open and their normal color...these just opened this morning and there are two or three buds yet to open.

    Connie,
    That is a great bloom.. Mine blooms every couple months with 4-5 blooms per stems.

    One of the best 'blue'. I use a picture of my Blue Boy as the wallpaper on my computer screen.

    Very nice blue. One of my orchid friend has one, but I hasn't been shared because it's still small.
