    Default I probably paid way too much for this in all likelihood

    But I was pathetically weak-willed at the orchid show I attended Palm Sunday. Add to that it was a plant I had been seeking for some time. [As were most of the other purchases I made that day. *sigh*] So here it is:

    Slc Jewelbox 'Dark Waters' ... 6" pot, $30

    has about 4-6 other blooms on the way

    For all that sassy glamour, $30 sounds like a good deal to me! Beautiful! Who could resist?

    That's a gorgeous colour. I really like all the the Jewel Boxes I have seen so far. If it wasn't for the whole "knowing next to nothing about the whole cattleya alliance and not sure if they like me" issue, I'd get one and be up there with you. Can't remember where I've seen it though....

    Sounds like a fair price to me.

    Default Nice!

    That plant in a 6" pot in bloom was a STEAL for $30. The ones I've found are like in 4" pot and not in bloom and cost that much...

    An excellent buy, especially since you got to see the blooms before you bought. If you are unhappy with it, I'll take it off your hands....

    I think it's lovely and that's probably an average price for a Catt here in UK

    Tell us about your other purchases!

    Yeah -- you paid WAY too much! I would be happy to reimburse you the $30 and take the plant off your hands. Just kidding -- I think you got a great deal, fantastic flowers, big plant -- nicely done.
