    Cattleya Michelle Obama - another failed coerulea cross

    Yea, like me… I think it’s pretty and should get bigger and better on subsequent blooms.

    Phalaenopsis Hell’s Fury ‘Red Devil’ AM/AOS

    Congrats on lots of gorgeous flowers. Though I must say the plant itself doesn’t look so good especially looking at the base. And only It always amazes me the plants that get awarded but the plants are in such sad shape. I guess I don’t understand judging — maybe the flower is all that...

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