    Smile Colm. Wildcat 'Green Valley' May 2010

    I almost broke these spikes off when moving around some plants this morning. Glad I didn't, but when I turned the plant toward the center isle of the greenhouse, I had to take a few photos. I hope you enjoy them.

    Heya Bruce, that's a very nicely grown Wildcat-- I have several different ones and I have to say that the 'Green Valley' is a nice clone.

    For future tag updates, these are now Odontocidium Wildcats. The previously thought-to-be Miltonia in its parentage is now firmly classified an Oncidium.

    LOL, I didn't check Orchidwiz on this one. I guess I should have. Thanks Derek.

    That color combination of the dark red & lemon yellow with the white lip is a beautiful color contrast. Glad you didn't break that spike, Bruce. LOL! Betty
