    Cool LC. dormaniana x Cattleya 'Chocolate Drop'

    LC. dormaniana x C. 'Chocolate Drop' I got this new one last night at the local meeting....NZD12.00? not bad at all!
    My cattleya collection is really starting to build up now!

    It has quite a nice perfume too, not chocolate, but like a Daphne....
