    Hi Jason,

    Thanks for the compliment. You found the words I have been looking for, "glowing magenta". Purple alone simply is not enough describe these shades. Glad that you enjoy the show!

    Hi KC C,
    Glad that you enjoy the show as well and have some fun with it. I like the idea behind this thread. It becomes something like a journal of blooming cattleyas as the season changes its color.

    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Blc. Edisto 'Newberry'

    Dear all,
    I have not posted much in the last two weeks. Well, so many things going on right now in all departments of my life, work, family, personal life ... it's hard to know of what to do.
    The floofs are still there and doing their lovely things. Finally, this Sunday I got a chance to catch a breath so we are in for a wonderful treat of FLOOFERAMA!!! And maybe some bonuses as well!

    The Edisto is one gorgeous dark purple-red catt! One of my all time favorites!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Blc. Eagle Island 'Sangria' AM/AOS

    Fall-blooming catts are showing off their colors! Our orchid society show will be held at the Huntington Garden here in Pasadena/San Marino in 2 weeks. I wish these plants bloom a week later but oh well...

    Pretty rose color catt!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Lc. Persepolis 'Splendor' AM/AOS

    A great semi-alba clone. It has been used much in breeding. Its progenies in many ways have surpassed it in the flower's size/shape and color. But it is still a good one.
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Default Lc. Angel Heart 'Hihimanu' AM/AOS

    Another great catt. This mature plant gives me a good head of pink-picotee lovely blooms. There are 7 flowers on the spike!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    Another gorgeous blue, this clone is a remake from one of the best blue catt's breeders.

    Default Blc. Taiwan Queen 'Golden Monkey' HCC/AOS

    A bit hard to grow this one but if you do it right, the plant will reward you with the most striking and gorgeous flowers! I have two plants of this clone. One plant gave me much better flowers but it has not bloomed for 3 years!
    Cheers. Hoa.

    OK, I feel better now. It has been a dreary fall day here--sprinkled all day and I have stayed by the fireplace. Seeing your spectacular floofs has been like a breath of spring. I am particularly smitten with Blc. Edisto 'Newberry'! Thanks Hoa.

    Another Blue Grotto clone. This one has darker bluish color but smaller flowers than the 'Gran Blue' clone.
