Jan. 29, 2016: Larry has been fascinated by the differences in the flowers of seed-grown hybrids recently. We observed this with our Molly Tylers (see post here) and the Circle Stars (see post here). When Orchidworks offered some cheap Cattleya seedlings for sale, Larry got some. It would be interesting to see how similar or different the flowers will turn out to be.
We got 3 Yamadaara Orchidom Green Glade ‘Shungetsu’ AM/AOS and 3 (Blc. Chunyeah ‘Good Life #1’ SM/TOGA x Blc. Hans Kunning)

While picking up these plants, Paul gave one of his Paph. Gyorgi Naggy plants which he hybridized himself! This is incredibly exciting for us since all the flowers from this hybrid had been so varied. THANKS, PAUL!
