    Default Lc. Outbreak 'Dark Beauty'

    A catt with iridescent purple color with even darker purple splash! The luminescent purple color of the blooms reflects the light so the pictures of the flowers look very bright! The first picture was taken when there was a lot of sunlight and the second picture was taken in light shade. The blooms seem to glow in purple!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Lc. Trick or Treat

    A nice orange-color small flower catts. It compensates the size with the number of flowers. Cheerful little things!
    Enjoy. Hoa.

    Default Rhyncholaelia glauca (syn. Brassavola glauca)

    A night-fragrant cattleya alliance orchid. A single flower of this plant is enough to fill the whole greenhouse with its amazingly gorgeous scent. And that is what it has been doing at my place as soon as it gets dark! Sniffing (or rather inhaling!) the scent makes me wanting to come out and check on my orchids at night more often!!!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Just superb. I have been tempted many times to get a Triumphal Coronation. And I love the Trick or Treat, but gave mine up last year as I had to manage the size of the collection and wanted more paphs and phrags....

    I simply can't imagine the size of Triumphal Coronation! Amazing!

    Outbreak is stunning - it looks like purple satin in the first pic.

    And Hoa, do all Brassavola's smell at night? That is, are they all moth-pollinated? I know digbyana is as well.

    Thanks everyone for looking and the nice comments!

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks!

    Hi Julie,
    The Rhyncholaelia glauca and digbyana have been separated from the Brassavola, I believe. But at least for all I know, I believe most of them if not all are fragrant at night (or at least the brassavolas I have). So most likely they are pollinated by moths.

    Hi Diane,
    Well, I resisted the temptation to buy the Lc. Trick or Treat for a long time since I know that almost everyone has that plant. But then the mentality that "they have it, I got to have it too" kicks in, so I gave in and bought one 2 years ago. It is doing well. I am surprised that you gave it up. I believe this plant can be grown outdoor here in Southern Cal. My neighbor does that although it will do much better in a greenhouse. I like the Blc. Triumphal Coronation 'Seto' very much. I had it for many years before the greenhouse era. I grew it outside in the patio for many years.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Sigh... I think that right now, with workload and travel and other duties, I just can't manage more orchids. At least, not more than I come from the SB show with... LOL

    Hi Diane,

    That is why we (me and Tim-O) suggested australian dendrobiums for you! These guys can take lot of abuse and neglect. I noticed from one of your posts that you said you have 200 orchids! That is a very sizable collection so no surprise that you can't manage any more orchids. However if you are willing to have more, then have the orchids that suit your lifestyle, i.e. australian dendrobiums! We can talk more about these things at our SB excursion!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    I'm really looking forward to it... I'm sure I can count on you to encourage my acquisitive intentions.
