    You got that beauty for $30??? I must be shopping in the wrong place. I love the backlit photo. That color is gorgeous.

    Well I guess I don't have to brow beat myself for being too much of a spendthrift! I had gotten the impression from a couple of the venders I always chat with when circumstances permit that I had paid more than I probably should have. [Nothing they said mind you, more their body language/facial expression]

    There was actually another one with more blooms for the same $ but I didn't like the foliage ... it was too flat/sprawlly/horizontal. As I recall that isn't uncommon w/ this cross but, partly because of space limitations & and partly personal preferance, the one I picked had more of an upright growth habit.

    For whatever reason, don't seem to see 'Dark Waters' offered much any more. I've seen 'Scheherazade' now and then but I've never liked it as much.

    Well, Elena, one was the lil phal I purchased for my mom [see the phal photo section], then a minicatt like the one I posted in the Orchid show section, & also Onc. onustum [that one was recently renamed ... something with a V but too lazy to check right now..] which I had had several years ago but lost. Really like the clear yellow flowers it gets. Finally, a Scaphocepalum swertifolium which I have been looking for quite a while now since I lost mine several years back.
