Hawaiian Attraction Cattleya Orchid

The Cattleya orchids are some of the best looking in the genus. A close second to the Rainbow Orchids (Vanda) for me. This one with its pure white petals and purple labellum and nice fragrance was a winner. It was in the for sale section of the Orchid Show for $45US. Not a bad price but I couldn’t bite it off right now (wrong season) plus I know where to get Orchids wholesale so if I buy any it will be there.

Thanks for all the well wishes and enquiries about my sister. It turns out she was on Kauai and had to evacuate her hotel and spend the night in a shelter. She said everything was okay at the shelter and when she returned to her hotel there was no apparent damage. Its just the media hypes everything here so it was easy for us to get nervous. She was flying home to Maui last night so the airport was open and operating semi normally.
