    Default C. luteola

    The second of my brazilian babies to bloom, in time with it's forbesii neighbor. This is a tiny orchid and should interest those who like small catts.

    Cattleya luteola is an adorable little plant with pseudobulbs only 2 inches (5 cm) tall and flowers often less than 2 inches (5 cm) across. It usually produces two to five flowers on a stem, although it can produce as many as nine flowers on a stem. Flowers are normally a lemon or sulfur color, but greenish-yellow clones also exist. The anterior lobe is whitish on occasion, and the front of the lip can have a few purple streaks or spots, but generally, C. luteola gives the impression of being a concolor yellow flower. Cattleya luteola has only one leaf on top of the pseudobulb, and the flowers have no cuts in the lip, unlike so many of the other small-flowered Cattleya species. Cattleya luteola is reported to have fragrant flowers

    It's in Diane's description..

    Here's what Arthur Chadwick says, "Cattleya luteola is reported to have fragrant flowers, but none of my plants show fragrance under either green-house or fluorescent light."

    ...one more thing. I remember when mine bloomed a couple of years ago that it had a slightly spicy scent. But this year..nothing?

    I wonder what could cause a plant to be fragrant one year and not the next? *Scratches head*

    Fragrant or not, it is a nice color combination.

    Cheers,
