    Talking Rhycattleanthe (Rtt) Mem Wilfred Cott

    This catt is Rtt Orange Nugget x Ctt Galaxy Belle. Flower size - medium, 3" across. Usual number of flowers 5 - 6 on a strong stalk, well held above the foliage.

    This is one of my favourite catts and my wife calls it the 'The Sunshine Cattelya' because she says it seems to light up the orchid house when in bloom. It blooms on almost every new p-bulb and gives me an excuse not to repot, although it has outgrown the 6" pot and spilling out of the pot.

    Very nice--like the orange and yellow combination! I suppose I will get used to Ctt and Rtt and all the new abbreviations, but I'm not there yet.

    I think I saw this being offered by a nursery in Florida, but can't remember the name of the nursery. Sorry, Bill.
