    Jmoney, he does have several of a few diferent things but his CDL collection is by far the most vast of them all. He has a lot of Cattleyas and Dendrobiums as well as a mix of a bit of other stuff.

    Slipperhead, I am drawing a blank on the names of those, I want to say moutnatin something but I really cant be sure. If I remember Ill be sure to post the name for you. If you are really curious I can make sure I go back and get the name.

    I think the 4 lavender paphs might be the Darling 'Bagatelle'

    Default CDLs???

    Allright, I'll bare my soul in front of the group instead of sending a private message because there may be others wondering the same thing...

    ...what does CDL stand for....???

    "Cattleya, Dendrobrium, Lycaste"??

    "Paph cdl" = paph callosum...???

    Just adding to what Forrest said...the most famous clone of Clair de Lune is 'Edgard Van Belle' AM/AOS, one of the three finest green-and-white Maudiae types. Enormous flowers and vigorous grower.

    I don't typically plug my site and can't stand people who do. But here's a link to a close-up pic.

    Clair de Lune 'EVB'

    Personally, I would love to get my hands on that Dendrobium with the wild lip and the blue Vanda in the pic above it. Those are just stunning to me. Nice pics, Forrest.

    Jason, you can plug your site here *any* time. That's a gorgeous CDL.
