    Default Cattleya Chocolate Drop x Cattleya Mae Hawkins

    This is a sister seedling of a plant posted earlier. I bought a few of these a long time ago when only the cross was tagged and not named. Since then it has found a name: Cattlianthe Tutankamen

    As you can tell they have been sprayed recently with Dithane M-45.

    You are very lucky!
    This is the best Cattlianthe Tutankamen I did see.
    Indeed it has a gorgeous red. From experience I know the texture is good and the form specially the lip is excellent for this hybrid.
