    Default Cattlianthe Loog Tone 'S.D.'

    Another minicatt from my yellow orchid binge. This one has some interesting markings and apparently is a mix of many cattleya alliance members. The parents are Cattlianthe Netrasiri Doll x Catt. Thospol Spot. Really weird names. I've tried to find out more about this one (still haven't set up Orchidwiz yet) but not much luck. It doesn't seem to be that uncommon, although the cultivar 'African Beauty' HCC/AOS seems to come up more frequently. No idea what 'S.D.' stands for - I'm assuming the names involved are African in origin but I haven't a clue what exact language it is.

    Anyone know more about this?

    The yellows definitely brighten up the day as we head into winter. There are 14 species in its ancestry, but primarily C. aclandiae, Gur. aurantiaca, C. guttata and C. luteola. General mini-catt care is fine. From breeding in Thailand, Netrasiri and Thospol are names of the guys who registered those, don't know the meaning of Loog Tone but must be Thai too. Can't help with the 'S.D.' either.

    Well, what use are you, then? Don't you speak Thai?

    Okay, you've named 4 species - 10 to go, and I expect answers on the other issues, pronto!

    (Actually, I'm very impressed - I started researching it and my brain fogged around the time they got to species that had contributed less than 2% - that's more minutiae than my little grey cells can handle right now. )

    I looked it up for you in Orchid wiz. There are several awarded cultivars of Loog Tone (African Beauty appears to be maroon), but cultivar 'S.D.' doesn't appear there, although I found it in several spots online.

    Loog Tong has Chocolate Drop as a grandparent, and the AOS awarded Loog Tongs all look like improved Chocolate Drops: dark glossy red, 8-9 flowers, 8-9 cm natural spread.

    Well, I did try Google Translate on Loog Tone before I replied, so blame Google for the lack of translation. As for the other species, add C. granulosa, C. forbesii and C. dowiana to the list, the others make up 1/16th total and don't really matter. OrchidWiz does come in handy. AS for 'S.D.', I need to leave some mystery for you to solve.

    Late breaking news... Loog Tone means hardy child, as found elsewhere on OrchidTalk.
