    They're both gorgeous, but Gypsy is outstanding.

    The type you describe, Di, is the only color pattern I've ever seen [at shows or catelogs, etc.] Assuming Gin's wasn't mislabelled, I am very surprised and... like you ... prefer hers to the only color type I've seen.

    [Not meaning to be a wet blanket, but I have found that sometimes image searches on Google have to be taken with a grain of salt -- I've had orchids show up on searches that were obviously mislabeled ... sometimes not even the right genera]

    What do you mean by "small growers?" I bought a "mini" and find out it needs to get to 12 inches before it will flower. Now, if THAT is a mini, what exactly does a small grower do and I can't imagine what a full sized catt would have to get to for flowers!!!!
