I'll hit ya up one of these days after Festivus is over. I'm always willing to try something different, unless it involves downloading a bunch of software or a new or a different browser. This old dog is recently tired of that kinda learning action.

Oh Dusty, I figured you would recognize them. This post was for you!

Wanna play a game? I'll tell you hybrid name, you can tell the genus. See name clues above.

I recognize them mostly. But the spider plant threw me.
But, just because I'm a good sport, in the original post:

Epi
No clue
Catasetum
I just bought a yellow bird yesterday so that's easy
Rlc? I've seen this one before
Some kind of cat hybrid (very pretty, by the way)
Silvery wings I have no idea
I'd change that to Lipstick on a lealia (I want a piece of this)
Paphs and dendrobiums are easy
and I don't want to talk about leptotes

Bonus round:
Again, paphs are easy
Pink Girl was represented in our show this weekend
and a possible rlc? I'm not real good at the multi genera hybrid cats.

How'd I do?

And you ARE a good sport... that's why I knew you'd want to play!

Epi
Eplcattleya Rene Marques 'Flame Thrower'
No clue
Oncidium Space Race 'Coco
Catasetum
Yup
I just bought a yellow bird yesterday so that's easy
Brassolaelia Yellow Bird
Rlc? I've seen this one before
Cattlianthe Trick or Treat (was Laeliocattleya back in the day
Some kind of cat hybrid (very pretty, by the way)
Sophrolaeliocattleya x Potinara (a intergeneric orchid mutt)
Silvery wings I have no idea
Latouria-type Dendrobium (thought Dens were easy?)
I'd change that to Lipstick on a lealia (I want a piece of this)
That Lealia is named after someone.
Paphs and dendrobiums are easy
Hmmmmm....
and I don't want to talk about leptotes
It's on an automister or would likely be dead

Bonus round:
Again, paphs are easy
But isn't it purty?
Pink Girl was represented in our show this weekend
Boring in my opinion
and a possible rlc? I'm not real good at the multi genera hybrid cats.
Epilaeliocattleya Golden Sunburst


How'd I do?
You overall got a Probably better than I would have.

Thanks. My leptotes gets sprayed heavily everyday. Lots of air movement and I keep moving it into stronger light. Was told by a grower pohlitinicoi is a late bloomer. At least, later than bicolor.

I have buds on both, I think it will still be several weeks. So patience... Look carefully for buds, they hide among the leaves. It has been cool (and I grow them outside), probably shy mine are a lot later than WW's.
