    Default NOID Cattleya



    This Catt. opened a gorgeous bloom for me yesterday - except that it appears to be blighted or diseased if you look closely.

    I haven't dropped it or somehow damaged the bud. The brown spots, as well as some clear ones are hard bumps on the petals.

    Does anyone have any ideas about what could be wrong?

    Such a shame - sob, sob... This was my consolation Catt. for breaking the spike off the C. Sheila Lautenberg - some consolation. Oh well, I have another one coming that looks healthy, if somewhat crooked.

    Such bumps are what we usually call scar tissue, it has two meanings, either the bud suffered some mechanical damage or it is virused.

    I'm worried that it might be a virus - if I have Phillip do some macro shots of the diseased areas, do you think you could tell? I'm thinkig that maybe I should toss it out, just in case.

    I wouldn't toss it just yet. Keep it separate from your other orchids and see how it blooms next time.

    cheers,

    I agree with Bruce. Also instead of just tossing the orchid get a virus test kit, its not at all expensive, I think 15-20 dollars per test is the max. cost, unless you have no sentimental value attached to the plant and it was a very cheap buy. Also as I said scar tissue may arise due to mechanical injury as well and there are no real signs to tell such subtle differences.

    Thanks, Bruce and Amey. I can really enjoy it from afar..) By the way, it looks like a Greenwich to me. What do you think?

    Thanks so much, Tamara! It is indeed a very beautiful catt, even with the blemishes.

    Nope not Greenwich, the lip is far too big and frilly for it considering the two strong doses of granulosa in immediate ancestry. It is either a Rl. digbyana F1 or an offspring of Rl. digbyana F1 with some other Rl. digbyana F1. One plant come to my mind, Rlc. Magic Meadow (Rlc. Memoria Helen Brown x Rl. digbyana) or some hybrid from Rlc. Ports of paradise etc. It will really difficult to ascertain the correct id. since now there are many similar looking and very variable crosses.
