    Question Striking NOID Cattleya, know it?

    This cattleya opened 2 blooms in a delicate light lemon-yellow-green with a very striking deep purple lip! Wish I knew it's name as quite special. The bloom measures about 4" in diameter, no fragrance as yet.

    Cheers, Michael

    Default Could this be a Blc. Helen Brown?

    Just saw that new post 2 clones of Blc. Helen Brown. Although those blooms
    show some yellow inside the lip could this one be a Blc. Helen Brown as well?
    Thanks for answers from those who have/know Blc. Helen Brown!

    Cheers, Michael

    Also worth mentioning: this cattleya developed a very strong, but pleasing fragrance after 4 days and lasted about 3 weeks.

    Cheers, Michael
