    As you might possibly have gathered, Cattleyas are number one favourite for me. I do have a lot, and as long as I can see a bit of space, I keep looking out for more. So I get new flowers - plants I have not flowered before, or old favourites re-appearing several times a week. Thgis one has made two good possibly FS bulbs or canes or whatever you want to call them, this year but only one has flowered. Only a single flower too - but quite a good one. Natural spread 15cm. Rooted nicely in my favourite bark in good condition still, with space for at least another year of growth, so room for much improvement.
    The only fly in the ointment is that this grex - Melody Fair - has been awarded lots of times, almost always this clone ( Carol) - and the pictures of the plants show a true semi-alba - white petals and sepals and a really solid dark red lip. So this is not true to name.
    It could be that it is a different clone, but there is no complete alba in its parentage that I can see, so probably not even Melody Fair at all.
    But who's to know ? I guess very few people will rush to Orchidwiz, and unless they actually know Melody Fair they will be fooled. So I am leaving the name tag on, its better than being a NOID.
    But if any of our members says 'hey - thats a double for ....." then please shout out.
