    C. Duvaliana (C. leuddemannia coerulea x C. purpurata alba ‘Red Carmin’

    A few years ago Jerry Fischer remade several old crosses that were not available anymore, with what he says are superior parents. In the case of this one from 1898, C. Duvaliana (C. luddemanniana coerulea x C. purpurata-alba ‘Red Carmin’), I think he hit a home run. It has such a unique strong...

    Hadley Cash

    I’m sad to say it was posted on another forum that Hadley passed away yesterday after a long illness. A true gem of a person, a southern gentleman and one of the greatest hybridizers of all things Paph. His tremendous legacy will live on.

    Rlc. Pamela Hetherington ‘Coronation’ FCC/AOS

    I heard David Off (of Waldor) speak a couple of years ago and he mentioned that this was his favorite Cattleya. I got an original division from him and this is its first bloom for me. Oh my, with a 16 cm NS and a 7.5 cm wide lip, it is indeed spectacular!! Soft pleasing fragrance to boot...

    Largest Fritz Schomberg cross

    Posted on another page by Michael Tibbs. I don’t know him but thought it newsworthy. Phragmipedium LOVELY LYNNE (Fritz Schomberg x PeruFlora’s Cirila Alca) The very best and biggest ever to flower. NS 12.7cm. It’s not without its problems being a colchicine treated hybrid but the size...

    Rlc. Toshie Aoki ‘Pizzaz’

    When I saw this at Akatsuka in HI, it was a clear bright yellow with a red throat and a clear red splash. What on earth has caused this coloration? Muddy mess in my view. I’ve tested 2/5/20 and it was negative for virus. I will test again ASAP. Any other ideas? Growing temp is 82-84 days. 70...

    Phal. Haur Jih Fancy ‘Taida Red Jewel’ (Phal. Chingruey’s Blood-Red Sun x Phal.Chingruey’s Fancy)

    This little cherub is the first bellina for me. Her pure red won me over. Purchased at the VOS 2020 show in Richmond from Orchid Classics. First bloom for me. Sorry for the damage to the bloom on the left. I knocked it over when I was watering 🙃

    C. Duvaliana (C. luddemanniana coerulea x C. purpurata-alba ‘Red Carmin’)

    This one is interesting in that it’s very fragrant and it smells like root beer!!

    Laelia purpurata striata Jason’s Choice x Laelia purpurata schusteriana ’Equilab’

    An OL seedling on its first bloom. This is my tallest Cattleya at 32”. Thank goodness she likes light because she’s towering above my other high light catts and still has good room under my lights!! Mild spicy/sweet fragrance late in the day.

    Virus testing on Cattleyas

    I've completed the testing on my Cattleyas. Still working on the Paphs, Phrags and Phals. So far, all paphs are Virus Free. Here are the stats on the Catts: 50 tested; CymMV + 9; ORSV + 4; CymMV+ & ORSV + 1; Virus Free 36. Total positive 28% Definitely disappointing the percentage is that...

    Moss? In pot

    I have this in a couple of pots, both Cattleyas. Should I be concerned? If so, what should I do?
