    Lovely display, Horst. The photo is beautifully composed, and balanced very well in the treatment of the full inflorescence. Very elegant color. Bravo!

    I am definitely a novice when it comes to orchids, but am a full blown green thumb. So pardon this question: what is the difference between a Cattlianthe Portia "Baronesa" and a Cattlianthe Portia? I fell in love with a Cattlianthe Portia 'Country Acres' orchid when i first saw one at the DC botanical garden. It was a lovely fuchsia like color and not bluish like the one shown in this thread.

    Also i noticed several of you mentioning that you have just acquired one.

    Do the bluish ones have a scent similar to the fuchsia ones.

    Cattlianthe Portia is a cross in between C. labiata and Guarianthe bowringiana.
    Both species have coerulea varieties (bluish color) as well as they have species type form (fuchia, pink, purple etc.) and also alba.
    If you take two coerulea plants, one from each species and cross them you will probably get coerulea (bluish) offspring. If you take the species type form you will get definitely offspring in fuchia etc.. Same with alba clones.

    "Baronesa" is the name of the plant, the so called cultivar. All plants with this name are clones or divisions from the original "Baronesa" plant.
    Hope this help you to understand a bit more about orchid Nomenclature.
