    Question NOID Cattleya, know it?

    This very large blossom cattleya is a frequent bloomer (3 times in the last year) about 5 inches (wrong: 7 inches is correct!) in diameter, and gets to a deep canary yellow after a few days plus lasts up to 3 weeks! Would love to know it's name if any of you have a clue. Thanks!

    Cheers, Michael

    That looks like Blc Haadyai Delight, one of the best yellow catts from Thailand. Incidentally the cross was made by a friend of mine Dr Prachayakul of Haadyai. There are a few varieties of this cross, all of which are outstanding specimens.

    Default NOID cattleya

    Congrats Michael. 7 ins flowers are huge: they are normally 6 ins. A well-grown mature plant will give 3 blooms ( see my first posting 09-18-2009.
    I have now 6 divisions of Haadyai Delight and 1 month ago one of the divisions flowered.Here is a picture of it. Yours seem to have more veinations in the lip.

    I think that Blc Haadyai Delight is available everywhere now. I saw some awesome specimens in the posts from our members in Vietnam.

    No one should have an unnamed Catt in their collection. Please send it to me.
