    Default Blc Hunting Island 'Carmela'

    This is a tiny little plant with nice big blossoms. Unfortunately, it broke out of it's sheath and opened while I was gone, so the flowers did the siamese twin thing. Very heavy substance, incredibly heavy fragrance, what I would call traditional Floof fragrance.

    Ooo, so very rich, and the "mirroring" makes an interesting photo, I think.

    They are about 5". Which is amazing as the tallest pbulb, the blooming one, is only 9".

    Outstanding catt! I love these very dark and richly color catts!

    I have found it is very difficult to capture different shades of lavender, red, purple of the cattleya blooms. It appears to me that the human eyes can recognize the differences in the intensity and the hue of rich and dark color purple catts. These blooms look even better in person!
    Great job with them despite frequent absence!
    Cheers. Hoa.
