    Default Cattleya Bob Betts x Cattleya Karl Hausermann

    I've wanted cattleya Bob Betts for ages, I've finally found one (well, as close as I could get to Bob Betts and I ended up buying 2!) I have a question though that I can't completely figure out from reading online - the heritage of Cattleya Karl Hausermann is Cattleya Bob Betts x Cattleya Diane Sato - does anyone know the heritage of Cattleya Diane Sato?
    Thanks

    Cattleya Diane Sato = Cattleya Dorothy Phelps x Cattleya White Belle
    Cattleya Dorothy Phelps = Cattleya Eucharis x Cattleya Irene (1914)
    Cattleya White Belle = Cattleya mossiae x Cattleya White Empress

    Do you want all the generations back to species?

    Overall, the species make-up of Diane Sato is similar to Bob Betts, lots of Cattleya mossiae, some Cattleya gaskelliana and Cattleya trianae, but Diane Sato also has a Cattleya warneri ancestor way back.

    Carl Hausermann, with a C, btw...

    Thanks PaphMadMan,
    No need to go back to species - now I've searched for it with a 'C' I've found it fairly quickly! (including a genealogy map)

    Hmmm - interesting that it's with a 'C', all the plants that I've seen with it over here in the UK have it with a 'K'

    Now all I need to do is find a straight Bob Betts (not crossed with anything) and a Bow Bells!

    Thanks again

    Nathan

    I bought a Bob Betts 'Tacoma' last year out of Hawaii (near blooming size). I'm really hoping it will bloom on its new growth this time! I bought on the basis of the pictures, I hope its as cool as it seems it will be!
