    Default Cattleya (Lc) Cypheri

    An old and rarely seen primary hybrid between Cattleya (Laelia) purpurata and Cattleya forbesii.
    My best bloom since I got the plant 3 years ago. The pseudobulb of forbesii with the size of purpurata. Strong grower. Enjoy.

    Edit : I'm sorry. I loaded my 1024px photo from my website. Tell me if I have to change.

    Excellant, Eric! Whatever you are currently doing, the plant obviously loves it!

    Thank you Pavel.
    I improve with age ! When I was young, I killed all my Cat...
    There are also plants that I do not succeed, such as Vanda. Surprisingly I can bloom regularly Renanthera or Vanilla but Vanda ... sometimes ... by chance ... every 2 or 3 years !

    Healthy plant with beautiful, soft colors. Congrats on this one, Eric. By the way...Some men, like wine, do improve with age. Others, however, turn to vinegar. Guess it depends on the man/wine...LOL! And this ladies & gentlemen is my 2001th post...Betty :-)
