On the left is a species, Cattleya skinneri. The smaller orchid is Slc ‘Jewel Box-Scheherazade’.

NOTE: Skinneri is no longer with us. He was left outside in the cold when he failed to bloom in 2010. Harsh, but the space was needed for more worthy residents.

    Yowza. These are really something! I think I like ‘Fancy Cherry’ best. Orchids kind of scare me in several ways – they seem hard to grow (are they??) and also they look like they could attack you if your back was turned. :) I’m sure you treat yours so well, they would never think of it, though.

    Thanks, Karen. Fancy Cherry is the newest one, and I do like that color combo. But I dare not try to choose a favorite. The Paphs are quite easy, and smaller than many of the orchids available. They won’t attack, just die on you. My next post is about them, I jumped the gun on the orchid page, it was supposed to go up the same day. HA

    Serious orchid envy here Frances. These are all stunning. I’m desperately fighting the addiction I feel coming on….
    Don’t know why I was surprised to see some Cattleya’s??? I keep thinking of you solely raising the Paphs!

    Thanks Kathleen. The catts will not stop blooming regularly so I can get rid of them! I also have a ghost orchid, immortalized in the book The Orchid Thief. It has never bloomed but is very tiny and seems to be growing. It is the challenge that allows it to stay in the greenhouse. :-)
