    This is my favorite summer Cat. I have had it for years. It is an aggressive grower. This plant has 2 more p. bulbs with bud. A very pleasant fragrance too.

    That's great, Harvey.

    1) There is no such registered plant as Valentine Todd, but I'll bet it's C. Valentine 'Todd'.

    2) That said, your plant can be relabeled as Cattlianthe Joy Prince

    Ray, Slc has been defunct since 2008. Merged into cattleya. I think Slc is a correct name that was used for this plant in the past. I believe you are right for current times. If I show the plant I will use your updated name. Otherwise I will refer to this old orchid with the old name. Much easier on my old memory...
