    Default BLC Richard Mueller cross in bloom

    This Catt hybrid and two others are blooming or spiking. Funny thing is I got them earlier this year without any spikes and really was not expecting any blooming activity this year or the next for that matter. I assumed they were too small to bloom, oh well! Oh, and it is fragrant!

    Yea, I remembered after I took the photo that It may change colors. Its been open for about a day and I swear it is already a different shade of yellow from when I took this photo. I smelled it again and nothing, maybe my nose was playing tricks on me!

    The Muellers are so generous and rewarding. As a group, mine don't seem to be the most fragrant though.

    I'm a Mueller fan. How could you not like a plant that will bloom two - four times a year and has a color shift? It's like 2 plants in one. Very Nice, Rich

    I have some Richard Mueller crosses in bloom now too. Probably one of the very first orchids I've owned. Can't ever get tired of them.

    Here are some photos showing the difference in color of a freshly open bloom vs the first bloom.
