    Default Blc. Village Chief "Green Genius"

    Most don't like Cat's with green in the petals but I quite like the contrast. I picked up a rather overgrown one of these in the spring and divided it into 3. Now I just have to find others that like green and make some trades. I really need to find a photo editing program that is easy to use. The one I have stinks.

    The color combination and contrast is quite unique. Just love it! I use the app Photo Image for resizing my pics. It's very easy to work with.

    I have not heard too many people tell me they don't like green in their Cats, because for me that is a beauty.

    I use PhotoScape for my photos and is easy to use and it was free, I'd rather spend my money on orchids!

    There is no registered Catt alliance hybrid called Village Chief, but there are over 140 called Village Chief followed by another word, all registered by a single nursery in 2004-2007. I found one of them with an awarded clone 'Green Genius' 1P/TOGA that does look like a match for this, so it appears this is correctly Rlc. (Blc.) Village Chief North 'Green Genius' 1P/TOGA. The color contrast with such sharp lines make it pretty distinctive.

    I end up using an app on my Android phone for the simple photo editing I do - Photo Editor Pro. Nothing fancy but fairly powerful and easy to use.

    I believe you are correct Kirk. I've not been able to find it either. I went by what the tag says.
