    Nice (?) cluster catt. 5 flowers, about 3inch across ( guessed). Actually its not quite to my taste, although I have difficulty saying why - I certainly like green cluster catts - Siam Jade and all that kind of thing. Maybe the green is not quite the right shade to appeal. Dunno !

    I commented about Orchidwiz, 'cos it says its an Rlc, but when I first looked at profile, I couldn't see why. It is a proper old mongrel - maybe 25% C.dowiana, with successively smaller shots of bicolor, granulosa, intermedia, tenebrosa, mossiae, warscewiczii, and purpurata. Not a Brasso in sight. But then I did notice "other" about 20%... and if I go back through enough generations , I see that Rh. digbyana was used a couple of times , about the time of Adam & Eve.
    \
    And btw, it ( Yen-Corona, this clone) got an AM from the AOS in 2007. The pic in Orchidwiz shows a better green for the sepals.

    I was doing a bit of watering this afternoon, dunking some of tghe catts recently mounted on branches ( my "naturally, or is that naturalistically" thing , and I was delighted to see that a few which I had mounted this way, without hardly any root at all, and certainly no new roots, were showing several new root starts. I think I shall move the rtest of my cattleyas into this method - wired on to real branches and hung up, in the near future , if I can find enough hanging room.

    Nice! I have one of these, too, but it hasn't bloomed for me yet. Mine says Blc. on the tag, though. I'm going to have to change it. I just can't keep up with all this orchid name-changing!!

    You know, you're not the only person who has said he's been disappointed with this one. I can't remember who posted it, but a while back a member posted pics of his, and he was bummed because his didn't have the splash petals...somehow the clone didn't carry the splash-petal trait, although it was labeled as the same plant.

    I've never actually seen this one in person. The pic that made me buy it showed all the colors as being brighter and more brilliant... but the pics I've seen from members here on the forum show more dull, washed-out colors. It makes me wonder if there wasn't some creative Photoshopping going on by the vendor I bought it from!! I should have looked at more than that one photo before I bought it, probably....

    Still, it looks like it's a good bloomer! (Trying to look at the bright side here...)

    Okay...I amend what I said earlier... I just noticed a bunch of threads at the bottom of the screen that related to the same plant. Connie's looked pretty brilliantly-colored, as did some of the others I saw. Does yours look bright in person?

    I commented on this thread before, but for some reason my comment disappeared!

    Anyway, what I said before was that you're not the first person to express dissatisfaction with this plant. I actually have one too... it's one of the first Catt alliance plants I bought, back when I didn't really like Catts that much. This was different enough from the traditional floof that I decided to give it a go. It hasn't bloomed for me yet, so I have no idea what these flowers even look like in person. But the photo I saw that made me want to buy it showed super-bright colors and eye-popping contrast. But when I see pics of this one on here, the colors seem more washed-out and dull. It makes me wonder if there might have been some creative Photoshopping going on by the seller I bought it from!

    Also, one of the members here posted a pic a while ago of his... his was missing the splash petals altogether and he was rather bummed about it. It had the same clonal name and all... just no splash petals. I'm curious to see what mine will look like when it blooms. Do the colors on yours look like that in person, or are they brighter?

    Anyway, if you like greens, check out the Blc Lester McDonald! It might be more to your liking.

    Your Yen-Corona "Green Genie" is really nice. I know what you mean about the green not being your taste. I felt the same way with mine but when I took it to our orchid society meeting it got a lot of attention. Many members wanted to know where to get one. Yours has better purple markings on the petals than mine does.
