This exciting hybrid showcases colorful blooms with bold, burgundy dots. The spotted pattern is from its lineage of Brazilian bifoliate Cattleyas, which are very resilient outdoor growers with bright colors and prominent speckles. The boldly speckled parents are the compact and spectacularly spotted Cattleya Motte Spot and Rhyncolaeliocattleya Long Life Spot, which adds fuller shape, amber hues, and a higher flower count.
This hybrid's burgundy dots are offset by a vibrant background color; this color ranges in the seedlings between pastel jade-green to rich amber-yellow (examples photographed above). The vivid colors require bright growing conditions: the coloration matures a few days after the flowers open. The large lip is predominantly vibrant fuchsia-pink. Some even bloom with fragrance!
Established blooming-size seedlings. Seedlings are the offspring of pollination; as siblings they may have some similarities, yet each seedling is unique and no two seedlings are identical in exact color or shape. There is no way to tell ahead of time exactly which colors and display each seedling will favor. Enjoy the surprise!
