    Doesn't an Orchid like this make you happy and put a smile on your face?
    It does make me happy and make me smile.

    An other outstanding and interesting plant from the"Smile" cross.
    Although the flowers are only 10 cm (4 inch) across I will stick with this plant and will try to make future hybrids with it.

    Beautiful! I love the bright color. Some of my favorite mini-catts only have 4" flowers. Some are even a little smaller. I think yours is great.

    "Happy" and "Smile" are such good words to use with this orchid. Thanks for letting us see this little beauty!

    A very round flower form ... something I associate with the Cattletonia (or whatever the latest "name of the day" is). 4 inches hardly seems small to me, but then I do mostly minis.

    The full form and full lip are very impressive and beautiful in this compact orchid. I looked at the Dandee Smile family tree and was fascinated by the breeding history of this orchid. I look forward to seeing your future hybrids.

    Beautiful color, my favorite, but then what else could one expect from Brazil? Thanks for sharing
