This is a discussion on Schomburgkia superbiens alba type within the Cattleyas, Vandas, Dendrobiums IN BLOOM forums, part of the Orchid Photography category; Hi, I have a hybrid of Schomburgkia superbiens alba with an unklnown alba Cattleya in ...
I have a hybrid of Schomburgkia superbiens alba with an unklnown alba Cattleya in flower. Could not find many superbiens hybrids on the net: anybody god an idea what it might be? As an aside the individual flowers don't last long: about 5 days one.
Lars, it is beautiful but I am sure it is not S. superbiens or alba form of that species. The flower form and lip are way off.
It might be a hybrid with L. anceps in the blood.
Tom, I know it is a hybrid. Been researching superbiens hybrids and could not find anything conclusive. Could be a hybrid with anceps: is there a white form?
Lars, sorry I only read the title of your thread.
There are few alba, semi-alba forms/varieties of L. anceps. Your plant may not be a primary cross.
WOW ! What a nice flower. And what is the plant growing in?? Looks like it is growing in the ground???
No, I just moved the pot into the garden such that I could take a better picture.Looks like it is growing in the ground???
@Tom: I checked some pictures from SBOE who have superbiens x anceps. The flowers look similar and have more anceps in them than this hybrid. The flowers of mine are very droopy. Almost of something like a white mossiae or similar is in it too. So I guess, I'll never find out what it is exactly.
It was also odd: the first flower only had 3 petals, which looked very much like superbiens, the next one 4 and each subsequent flower had bigger petals than the previous one.
