    Default Another Stellamizutaara Kelly 'Lea'

    Stlma. Kelly = (Brassavola nodosa x Cattleytonia Keith Roth), where Ctna. Keith Roth = (Cattleya bicolor x Broughtonia sanguinea)

    So Stellamizutaara Kelly 'Lea' is

    %50 Brassavola nodosa
    %25 Cattleya bicolor
    %25 Broughtonia sanguinea

    It's a nice plant, and a nice nodosa hybrid. For me, it tends to produce two, or sometimes three blooms per spike. By the way, if anyone has or can find a picture of a Stlma. Kelly that is NOT the 'Lea' clone, I'd love a link!






    Once I got in close with the macro lens, I discovered that the stigma and the underside of the column were surprisingly luminous. I guess the light must come through the back of the flower, but be blocked by the dark color on the top of the column, making the bottom, along with the female reproductive organ, seem to shine.


    Full plant.



    Potted on a pile on red and black lava rocks, with a rogue piece of hydroton for flavor.

    What a beauty ! And very nice photos. The photo of the lip and stigma looks like an entrance to a volcano, the the golden yellow orange colour like hot magma.

    What can I say that hasn't been said already. This is truly a magnificent bloomer. The colors are so vibrant and you photography is stunning. Good job , is that the Olumpus you used in the other thread also?
