    Default Cattlianthe Miva Royal Chocolate 'Delice'

    This Beauty is gracing my Greenhouse after a long time. I bought it in flower at the Hamburg Orchid Show in September 2009. For two years it did nothing but grow and finally it is blooming now with just one flower! It should typically have 3 to 4 of these big flowers per cluster, I hope the next time

    From what I am told and remember it is extremely fragrant.

    LOVE THIS Orchid Amey! I have a bunch of Cattlianthe Chocolate Drop seedlings crossed with something yellow (can't remember right now). I hope they turn out as lovely as this one. WOW. What an orchid bloom!

    Cheers,

    Thanks Zainal, I also hope it has multiple flower heads the next season. Bruce I think your seedlings will turn out in shades ranging from yellow-orange-red colours as yellow seems to be co-dominant with all these colors.
