C. purpurata carnea

Here is another carnea blooming.  A while back I sent a couple of backbulbs to Richard, telling him I wasn't sure if there were two different plants.  I am now positive that there are two different plants.  This one has a much darker lip and more color.  I prefer this one.  It should get better next year, now that it is getting established in a new basket.

Cattleya purpurata carnea

A reliable bloomer.  Moved to a basket last year, so not quite as nice as it can be.  This plant seems more attractive to thrips than most of my other plants.

Oncidium leucochilum seedlings

Oncidium leucochilum is a nice species.  I picked up two seedlings for a good price.  When I was re-potting them, a third small seedling was discovered and put in a third pot.  Look at all those new roots!
