    Default Cattleya skinneri var alba "Debbie"

    Finally got this one to bloom! This C. skinneri var alba "Debbie" FCC/AOS bloomed late in the season for me. As with most skinneri I got a lot of sheaths that turned brown and withered.

    The interesting thing about this clone is the hint of color with high light. I almost think it should be recategorized as a semi alba but its still pretty to me

    The other orchid is Potinara Afternoon Delight "Magnetism" AM/RHS

    Sorry for the poor quality photos, I snapped them with my camera phone

    Very beautiful cats . Not surprising that they are both awarded.

    This is known for "false alba" form of Guarianthe skinneri. I think "albescens" is better than "semi-alba" (no pink color on sepals/petals).
    Beautiful blooming.
    This is the season, mine (oculata) is blooming too.

    I echo both Yew's and Eric's thoughts. I also think if you cross these two orchids, you have a potential to create something very very beautiful!
