    And it is 13 bucks to ship! That better be a lot heavier than it looks...

    It is kind of interesting, but not my thing.

    I've had a variegated sport growing off my Cattleya mossiae v. warneri for a while now. Must not be as rare as I thought. Only one lead off the plant is producing variegated growths, and the flowers show no discoloration or distortions.

    you could get a couple hundred bucks for that in Japan (or I could... *grin*). It is probably worth removing it from the main plant and growing it on as a separate pot.

    I think I'm going to spray paint one of my catts hot pink and see how much I could get.
