    Default Cattleya Bob Betts 'The Virgin' FCC/AOS

    Diane traded me this division of her Catt last...fall, was it? I only later learned that this was a division of a division of a, etc, 4 generations back to the plant that won the FCC/AOS in 1960! I was thrilled!

    The only thing more thrilling is to actully see this guy live. The fragrance is strong, yet thoroughly delightful, and the blooms are stunning. I can't imagine the experience with more than two blooms!

    Thanks again, Thumb!

    Simply stunning, Julie!

    I love white orchids and want to have a few white Catts. I've been eyeing some up online for the last couple of days.

    Hey McJulie,
    So beautiful!!! A real floof that is. Combined with its amazing fragrance, there are not many other orchids that can beat it! Maybe another big floofy white floof! hheheheeee ... Great photos btw!

    Cheers.

    That really is lovely - a very nice shape too.

    Can I ask a cultural question? How often do you water your floofs? Sorry Catts?

    Lovely. The intense yellow is quite striking against the white petals.

    Julie--that is a lovely flower! I must admit, I'm not a _huge_ floofy catt fan...(star shaped, brassavola, Richard Mueller stuff is more 'me')but this one, I like and would be proud to grow!
