    Not really. It's on sale. There's an "AOS and Orchid Digest Fdk. After Dark 'Special'" sale that is ongoing. What is being offered are two different After Dark varieties at a reasonable price - one the dark black pearl variety and the other a burgundy, spotted variety (both FCC) and you could get both at a "bundled" special price. I have long wanted to have the deep, black variety so I opted just for one plant instead - the black pearl variety instead of the bundle being sold together. It was still offered at a good price but I could have gotten both for just a little more.

    Hey Randy,

    This is a sample photo of the flower that I got from the vendors website. The flower should look exactly like this because the plant I got is a clone.

    I love this plant and its name sure matches my handle.

    Hmm now that you've mentioned it, yes it does match your handle... i didnt noticed that
    before. I remember when I first heard of this, the first thing that came into my mind is
    the Afterdark screensaver back in the days.

    That is awesome. Being a catasetum nut myself I had to google to find out that Fdk is Fredclarkeara (what a mouthful!) the generic name for Catasetum x Clowesia x Mormodes. I really must search for this one.Hope to see yours blooming in its full glory.

    Thank you so much Yew.

    I would love to give you the exact site where I got this beauty but due to the rules governing this forum I cannot post it. I made that error before (in fact, twice already) and I'm careful now not to repeat that mistake again.

    This particular group/family of plants are so easy to grow and that is one of the reasons why I like these.

    Oh wow lucky you!!! I didn't even know those are now available in PI or did you order it directly from the grower? I saw their ad about those 2 plants that you mentioned.

    They are 1 1/2 hours drive from where I live and I've been wanting to visit their nursery to see their mini-cattleyas (they also specialize in mini catts) but hasn't had the chance to do it yet.
