Default A Cattleya mossiae


It photographs more blue than it actually is. The flower in 12 noon sun is
not that blue. I do like blue Cattleyas though and I have devoted a lot of
time to searching these prime stud plants out. I hope to breed/produce more
coeruleas in the years to come.

Is the blue in the photo of C lueddemanniana true to life? Amazing

Out in your greenhouse there is a bucket full of dead plant tags and
twisted telephone wire bits... when you get the urge to spend more money
on orchids just go out and look in that bucket for a few minutes.
That'll cure ya.

Did I happen to show you a C lueddemanniana that I bloomed in January? I
can't remember... well, here it is again. Lueddes are so nice...
wouldn't you agree?

Really nice, Mick. Everytime I see some of your plants I get the urge to
order some flasks. Is that condition cureable?

One of my favorite Cattleya mossiae semialba plants took an HCC today
at AOS. I think you will like this flower a lot.
