    Default Slc. Jewell Box 'Dark Waters' HCC/AOS

    Slc. Jewell Box 'Dark Waters' HCC/AOS was a beautiful deep red cattleya with a hint of yellow at the center that was brought in for judging. It had eight to ten stunning blooms on it and was sitting next to a bright yellow cattleya and an old floofy purple cattleya, which really made it stand out in its 'crowd.' A real showy plant that is fairly compact for so many blooms.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks all. I thought it should have won plant of the month, but a large oncid with three- three foot spikes of yellow blooms got that award.

    I still miss mine ... it doesn't seem to be commonly offered at least in my area. Bloomed every February like clockwork.
