    Default Lc. (Memoria Robert Strait x Aloha Case) 'Hawaii'

    A cattleya that caught my eye while watering. This is a big bloom on a smallish plant. I am not sure that I really like the shape of the flower though. What do you think?

    It looks a bit distorted. Was the bud damaged?

    No, I don't believe so. I think this is the shape of this one. I guess I will wait to see what the next flower looks like. Very odd.

    Ummm..... Bruce? Is that my ex-husband? He always was a little 'distorted'. Nice color, though. (he sunburned easily too)

    Well, I couldn't look a gift bloom in the throat, so I say - if it needs a home send him to me!!!

    I do like the lip. Looks like it's 'fluffing' you LOL!

    Kind of a bland looking bloom. Not the usual glorious looking orchid flower.

    looks like the dorsal just needs to stick up for itself!

    I think it is quite fun - it looks like it has ears. It's amazing the difference the dorsal not showing up makes to the shape of the plant.
