    Here's a picture of one of my BC. Mary Dodson which is in bloom. This is one of my registered hybrids. It is a hybrid of Brassavola nodosa X Cattleya schilleriana. The flowers 5.5" wide. There are three flowers on the spike this blooming

    Enjoy,

    Allen, I have a question for you as a breeder, and I don't want to sound mean or anything, but don't you get sick of nodosa hybrids after a while? I mean it's nice, don't get me wrong, but it seems to me that anything crossed with nodosa basically looks the same.

    Answer to first question: No, not at all. They are easy, good growers and tend to bloom more than once a year. More and different color combinations are being breed for in nodosa hybrids. This is what is exciting to me.

    Answer to second question: No. Take a look at my orchid photo page (www.ABlackOrchid.com) to see the great varibility in nodosa hybrids. Yes, they tend to be "star-shaped", but that's it.

    What I am tired of is the "same old" mericlones that are available in the marketplace.

    Allen

    Allen, that makes sense to me. I don't grow these, but I do appreciate seeing them.
