Topic: Those Odd Little Catts: Stray Species and Hybrids of the Cattleya Alliance

You know the classic Cattleyas, the refined Rhyncholaelias, the lovely Laelias . . . you get the picture. But there are a whole lot of other genera in the Cattleya group, some you may have never even heard of, that have their own charms and attractions. Come find out about these semi-feral flowers, and attempts to domesticate and hybridize them.

If you are not yet a member, you can try before you buy! You are invited to attend a meeting to see what it"s like, even before you join.

Learning from fellow hobbyists with similar interests and growing conditions is the best way to achieve success! Our members are happy to share their tips and expertise. We grow on windows, under lights, in greenhouses and gardens, here in New York City!
