    Default Catt. Brabantiae x Catt. loddigesii

    One of the very few orchids I have purchased without knowing what the flower would be like. I am disappointed that the dorsal sepal flips back like it does. (Would have considered taking it in for judging otherwise.) No fragrance that I can detect. Heavy substance and a good-sized flower -- especially compared to most chids that I grow -- approx 4 inches across. Ah well, though it isn't likely award quality, I do like the spotting so it'll be in no danger of losing its home.

    Thats a wonderful orchid, I can understand the dorsal petal problem, but it is really common for lodigesii hybrids, may be crossing this one with acklandie or its hybrids will get rid of that problems, but still retaining the colour and spots.

    I really like the lip and spots on this one Paul. Maybe the dorsal will be better on the next blooming and then you can take it for judging. It is a beauty of an orchid!

    Cheers,
    BD
