    Default Cattleya orchid Identification request

    Hello folks, today was a beautiful day for me because I bought a cattleya plant, the parent plant has the most beautiful flowers I have seen so far and the color is so rich, I talked the owner of the shop to sell me a plant from the very large one that had about six other plants if she had divided it up. she sold that for six hundred dollars and sold me a plant for two hundred, because of the blooms I saw I fell in love at first sight Name:  CIMG0657a.jpg

    It is a beautiful blossom, but echoing the astute gentleman above, "ouch" indeed.

    When I was in Barbados it was a 2 to 1 exchange so if the same holds true in Trinidad then it comes out to $100 US dollars, still a lot!

    Hi all it works out to be about twenty five to thirty US our exchange rate is around six dollars and thirty five cents per dollar though some places outside of the bank give more than a bank does, especially the business places as much as six dollars and sixty cents, Miller a hundred US would be about six hundred and thirty five dollars which is almost the cost of the whole parent plant.

    Nice price then, I just wanted to normalize it because I figured people weren't taking exchange rate into consideration. It's a very pretty orchid and I've paid 75 US dollars for an orchid so I have you beat! :-)
