One Species one Hybrid

June 5, 2005

Not much new this week, mostly the same plants with more flowers,
one virus suspect and these two plants. On the left is a Sophornitis
Cernua from Barzil, these flowers are beautiful, but small, they are
less than half an inch in size. This is the second flowering after a
while of trying to get consditions right. On the right is Cattelya Hot
Pink “Lulu” which I have shown before. This plants keeps growing and
each time it has more flowers. These are about two thirds of teh
flowers, it still has buds that have not opened.
