    I got phone calls this morning from friends who saw this wanting to know what vendor I got this from, maybe I should ask the vendor for a commission.

    I was out this morning moving a few orchids around and when picking this one up the tag was right in my eye view and I did a double take when I noticed the name on the tag, the correct name of this orchid is Cattleya loddigesii 'Aranda' AM/AOS, when I was typing the name of the orchid to put in the picture I was looking down on a pad of the name of the 4 orchids I had purchased that day and ended up getting the var. oculatum from the name of the orchid that was listed just above (Dendrobium fimbriatum var. oculatum). Hey kids I will be 67 next week and the brain does not work like it use too, much less the body, just think you will all have this issue to deal with! I have to keep reminding myself that I need to double check everything before I hit the Reply button, just a reminder that is sometimes hard to except!
