Yeah, even though I really like both of the plants I got from him, it was still disappointing when they bloomed and they weren't what I was expecting. It took each one about two years after I bought it to bloom for the first time, so for two years, I cared for each of those plants, looking forward to their first bloom, and then the day finally arrived, even though they were beautiful, they weren't what I thought I was getting and it was a little disappointing. I posted about both of them when they bloomed, and if you care to see the threads they are here:

Plant labeled Cattleya percivaliana 'Summit' (but it isn't)


Surprise Cattleya

They Cattleya lueddemanniana that I ended up with from him is probably a nicer plant than the one I thought I was buying, but I really wanted the other one to be percivaliana. I've already found a Cattleya percivaliana 'Summit' from a reputable nursery, but it is young, and I will probably have to wait another two years for it to bloom.

Hey!! That coerulea is at LEAST a NICE colored coerulea in my book! Ugh! I am always searching for a REAL coerulea versus one nearly white with a blue lip! That one has BOTH! The gorgeous lip and the color!

But. Let me add, I know what you mean...I was also looking at his C. Dowiana var rosea....his rosita was far too highly priced. If she bloomed and was something shattered. When you've searched and searched for an orchid and finally think you have it and it's blooming.....then it's not it....all that time wasted that you could have started another plant...ugh!! Heartbreaking moment no matter how nice the blooms are!
