    Also love the catt in the lower left of the next post below...with the spots, do you have a name for this one Hoa?
    Dear MtEquine,
    I can't stop posting either, hehehee... The orchids are quite addictive and you probably have found out yourself. I bought and bought and one day, they fill up every nook and cranes around the house, around the yard, under the trees, on the trees, your garage, your basement, your office, etc and etc ...
    And the name of the catt, only the first 4 postings of the series are catts, which I have provided the name. The rest as Diane said, are not catts. So which one? The non-catts are the baits for you guys keep coming back! E-veal me, I know!
    Cheers. DocSpock.

    Hi Judi,
    Thanks! Floofs are just the affectionate term that the addicts use to refer to these cattleya hybrid orchids. If you have seen them in person, especially those bred for show, you could burst into laughing out loud but not before taken by awe of their un-natural (better term is surreal) beauty. They are hugemongeous, very frilly, very floriferous, very pretty in the utterly feminine sense. Just like an overdone prom dress. Heheehehehee ...
    I hope you know that only the first 4 posts of the series are floofs!
    Cheers. DocSpock.

    Great blooms as alsways. Love Quicksilver and the skinneri 'Lilac', Straight Answer 'No Question' is worth having just for the name, he he! And that Psychopsis *sigh* I should be getting mine in 7 whole weeks....Patience, what's that?
    Hi Elena,
    Thanks! You moved very quickly from an innocent newbie to one of our very own e-veal members so fast, I was shocked! Heheheheee ...

    Sounds like muzacs to my ears, hehehheeeee ...

    Patience is a virtue, my friend Elena, since it will prevent you from a very bad case of severe orchid indigestion. I still have yet recovered from it, same as McJulie, heheheheeee ...

    Well..now that I'm not in a hurry, I see this isn't a catt...bottom left of this post, yellow/redish color, NO idea what it is, but want one! LOL

    Addictive, indeed. Just got my 8 mini catts in the mail to replace the frozen order and they look great...lots of new growth, and low and behold, they are NOT frozen this time! Whoohhooooo!

    Hehehe...I haven't been on all day, and yet I see the Doc is exposing his true e-VEAL self! You haven't needed me to protect you all.

    Floof is dangerous - view at your own risk! Species floof, is doubly dangerous in my mind, but that might be an acquired taste. Yet, it's hard not to cry over the beauty of Pat's recent post - the lueddimanniana!

    Anyway, Doc Spock, work your e-VEAL! The newbies must be brainwashed!

    RESISTANCE IS FUTILE!

    At last! The finest definition of "floof" that I have read! This should be immortalized.

    In the Dendrobium group: what is the plant where the blooms look like pale pink flying angels? 2nd photo down. Gorgeous!

    Hi Lynda,

    Thanks!!! And thanks again! I was thinking of an over-the-top prom dress but "overdone" would convey what I mean just fine.

    I would love to provide the names of other orchids posted for you guys but I have been so busy!!! This coming weekend, I will find time for it. I know of the names of most of them except one or two (these have very long or unusual name or just bloom for the first time so I don't have the name memorized yet).
    The dendrobium that the blooms look like pale pink flying angels is dendrobium aphyllum. It is blooming on a cane that is almost 6 feet long! The whole cane is covered with blooms but it was hard to do a good photograph of that. So I had to be content with a close-up shot.

    The oncidium that Mtequine inquired is Oncidium sarcodes, a species you might not see very often.

    Cheers. Hoa.
