    Default Lc Chocolate Drop x Ctna Jamaica Red and Gratrixara Sogo Doll

    These are 2 small size cattelyas with flowers about 2 inches. This is the second time blooming of the orange-red Lc Chocolate Drop x Ctna Jamaica Red since I bought it as a blooming size seedling just over a year ago.

    Both are beautiful! I'm becoming a big fan of these small cattleya type orchids.

    Very nice!

    I, too, am partial to the red one. Much better form than Ctna WhyNot, IMO. The color is brighter as well.

    That is my preferred one too. It has inherited a lot of the heavy substance, waxy texture and brighter colour of the Lc Chocolate Drop - all very desirable characteristics, but fortunately still retaining the smaller size growth of the Cattleytonia parent.

    Love both of them! The red looks like it has good substance, and the sogo doll has a very nice splash!
