    Default C. mossiae 'Willowbrook' FCC/AOS

    still some controversy if this is the actual species or a hybrid between mossiae and lueddemanniana, since the latter tends to have more deep magenta cultivars and blooms slightly earlier than mossiae. this one certainly blooms early for mossiae, this year the earliest yet for me! I remember an article last year somewhere where a unifoliate expert concluded that it wasn't possible to conclusively tell if this was true mossiae since its habits are still within the realm of variation, although I would be very interested if anyone did DNA studies on this particular cultivar. ah well, it is a fine flower in any case. doesn't seem very floriferous on the windowsill at least, but did repot it earlier this year and hopefully it will produce a better show next winter.

    She she must be a she is lovely, Jason! The color saturation is certainly intense!

    I was digging around through the WOC vendor lists, considering pre-orders, and the mossiae semi-alba and lueddemanniana rubra were both on my wish list. This certainly captures both! Well, maybe not the semi-alba part...

    Would you mind posting a shot of the whole plant? I have a mossiae, but it seems like a small plant for a unifoliate Catt. I'm wondering if it's simply immature.

    will snap a pic later today when the sun shines (hopefully)...the pseudobulbs are roughly 8" tall, with the leaves another 10-11" or so. I'm sure well-grown greenhouse plants will be somewhat larger. I have a mossiae semi-alba that is roughly the same size, in sheath, although it was repotted and hopefully will still bloom from these.
