Need Help Locating Florida Grower of This Orchid
Default Need Help Locating Florida Grower of This Orchid

I need the help of the Cattleya experts/detectives out there. I'm trying to locate the Florida based grower that sells the orchid in the attached photo. It is was recently named Lc. Love Knot 'McKnight's Beauty' and received the AM/AOS awards at the Alabama Orchid Show. I spoke with the owner of the plant Mr. Mcknight. He indicated that he purchased it from a grower in Florida but he doesn't recall their name or location. Is there anyone on this forum that can help me locate the grower or provide me with a suggestion on how best to continue looking. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

Wow *keeps staring* I have no idea where to look, I did a google search for it and nothing came up Only the Carmela version of Lc Love Knot that isnt as remarkable.
If I can help in any way let me know, I'd love love one of those too

Well I tried searching on Google and also on OrchidWiz, but I am still not that familiar with OrchidWiz yet sooooo.....anyways.....If it won an award, wouldn't that have to be showing up somewhere? When was the Alabama Orchid Show?

The Alabama Orchid Society Show was held in September of this year. That is how I located the person who had the orchid judged. That is also where the photo was taken by the official photographer for the event. It's unfortunate that Mr. McKnight doesn't remember which Florida grower he purchased it from.

Hmmm....found an exhibitor name of Virgil McKnight on a photo I found taken by Maureen Mckovich Pulignano.

Here is the link: Lc Love Knot 'McKnight's Beauty' AM/AOS photo - maureen mckovich pulignano photos at pbase.com

Hope this will help someone find it!
