Cattleya walkeriana has been chosen as the project plant for 2016.

I have added the listing of sites where popular Cattleya can be found. Feel free to add other links!

Paramount has the C. walkeriana and the Leptotes bicolor:

Dangit, I was just about to make my decision and vote Leptotes bicolor because I already have that and uh... stuff is happening right now that's making me think it would be stupid of me to spend more money

True. If I do, I'll probably get it from Hausermann's; I like their prices.

I don't know how to add the link but Fantasy Orchids has the walkeriana but I don't know if they have the leptotes as they don't always post all that they have.

I guess I should say that they have the semialba one any way.

So do we all start saying when and where we got our plants here? I have never taken part in a project before.
Anyways, I just bought a C. walkeriana semi-alba several weeks ago at the Edmonton orchid show from Ten Shin Orchids. It was bare root but he said he grows his in bark. I know they are often mounted but I am not always around to water mounted plants. So I gave it a seaweed soak and then potted it in a 3 inch air cone pot with medium bark. A few decent roots but not too many so I hope it gets established. I think it might be a near bloom size plant. It's not real large, but they are small plants anyways.

I am editing to add a photo of my C. walkeriana var. semi-alba:

My project walkeriana is coming from Andy's Orchids and the description says that it is mounted. It should ship this week.

That's a nice alba walkeriana that they are selling. If I didn't already have an alba dolosa, that one would have been my choice.

Usually, if you can, you post pictures of the project orchid, too.

Ok I am glad this is one of our plants for this year. I did get the plant at the end of June 2015 from SVO.
All my plants on that order were great except this little guy looked worse for wear and maybe got smashed in shipping. Here are the pictures from that day and then from today, it's still not pretty yet:

I am anxious to see the mounted one from Andy's, maybe I will get another.

We're going out of town for this week. Ordering my C. walkeriana when back.

Going to challenge myself and try to grow it outside. The squirrels better be on good behavior.
