    Dear you all,
    Thanks so much for all the compliments! We might start seeing some real floofs from this point on since fall-blooming catts are upon us! Heheheeeeee...

    Hi Diane,
    I don't know who else got that plant. As far as I can tell, I am the only I know has it and I have never exhibited it. It will be difficult to let someone take it, even for a while! It is a monster! Surely it will impress people even when it is not on bloom.

    Hi Bruce,
    Thanks! Since you are so nice, maybe I should submit more pictures for your book. I have been so busy!

    Hi McJulie,
    You know your comments always crack me up one way or the other. You wickedness!!!
    Thanks for the head-up on the Irish Pepper cross. I will seriously consider to register this cross and submit it for judging next year. You are right, it is rainbow sherbert! Now I am hungry for some ice cream, nah, better still, an orange sherbet!

    Hi Tim,
    Thanks! Your wish is my command!!! Heheeeeeheee... We will all see more floofs soon enuf ...

    Gorgeous splash yellow! A truly classic! I find it a bit difficult to grow. Maybe the plant likes more warmth!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    The bloom from another plant of this clone was posted previously. The blooms from this clone this time is much better! Great saffron yellow color with a dash of red lipstick on the lip.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    If it likes more warmth I would be willing to take it off of your hands, we have lots of warmth in SW Florida.

    Uh oh...your Alma Kee is blooming... Does it put up its sheath earlier in the summer and then rest for a while? I have a sheath that hasn't done anything - it came with the plant. And has just browned. But I have two new growths that are strong and getting close to full size. Can I expect fall blooms, or did I croak the sheath?

    BRAVO Hoa! These are beautiful. I the Blc. Toshie Aoki 'Pizzaz' AM/AOS. Feel free to divide it or just ship it to me anytime you get tired of it! heheheh..

    Your C. Granier's Charm is nice too. I really wanted a blue cattleya and in about a year I hope to bloom a beautiful very BLUE cattleya. Today at our orchid society meeting Louis and I got new cattleya cross that should be really blue! A friend of ours, who grows commercially, is into breading designer cattleyas and if it this one turns out like the parents..WOW! I just hope it blooms in the next year. It is so small, but he says it should be on its way to blooming. As soon as it blooms, I will be sure to post a photo for all to see!

    Cheers!
