Excellent! Congratulations.

Why do non-growers get to be judges?.......'Boggles the mind!

I firmly believe that each judging team should consist of a minimum of 4 judges and the lowest score and highest score should always be discarded and not factored into the average. 'Guess the problem with that is there may not always be enough judges to make teams with a minimum of 4.

Thats what I have always wondered. Plenty of them out there judging too. It always seemed like some kind of popularity/status thing to me. At least at my Judging Center. I want to know what is happening the the Judging Center in Hawaii that awarded those single bloom Cattleyas, that were sent in the link to the latest awards section on the AOS website.

Very pretty.

I think there is a big difference between someone who has practical knowledge (a grower) vs. someone who has theoretical knowledge.

From the photos obviously not a lodigessii, this F2 cross confirms it is a hybrid. I wonder what the other original parent was?

Still, a very pretty Catt.

Got talked into sending it, and scored an 80pt AM at NCJC last Sat. I wont name the low baller on the team, but she can't grow an Orchid to save her life.

Maybe she can recognise a Cattleya that is NOT lodigessii, and was the only knowledgable judge of the four.

Its actually a loddigessii var harrisonaiae not a straight loddigessii as Streeters choice was a mericlone mutation of loddigessii var harrisonaiae 'Dianne'

Why are there conpsriracy theorist everywhere

Streeter's Choice was always suspect, the selfing was intended to prove whether it was a true chance tetraploid from the cloning of a species or a hybrid.

The amount and vast range of variation in the progeny from this selfing answers the question to my satisfaction.

Not a conspiracy theorist, just drawing the obvious conclusion.
