    Default Cattleya Compot Specials

    Went to an Orchid show over the weekend. Very nice display but the sales area took my attention mostly.
    These compots (5inch pots) attracted me. The one plant in flower certainly did.
    The flowering compot is C. Lana Coryell x C. Lana Coryell.

    Good thing is they could cost around $2.00 per plant as an average.... Might make a dollar or 2 profit when I sell them. ( after I flower them )

    Well, the good news is Orchidbids is up - you can sell them to us! What fun. I decided NOT to buy two compots equaling about 20 Cattleyas, because I am sure I don't have room to grow them out.
