    Cattleya Dandee Tease

    The parents are C. Beaufort x C. percivaliana

    First blooming of this plant.
    Somebody some time ago told me:
    "Don't use C. percivaliana to make hybrids. You will regret it."
    I did it anyway and the result isn't to throw away and I didn't regret it at all.

    Maybe I should use it again in some of the next generation hybrids.

    Really? What was the rationale?

    Stunning, Horst - the red lip is particularly dramatic against the magenta.

    I'm curious as to why you were advised against using catt percivaliana in hybridizing.. The shape of this species is generally quite good among the cattleya species..

    I assume C. Beaufort has made it a compact plant. Was the warning on using C. percivaliana secondary to many being tetraploid? It turned out very nice!

    I've seen a few C. Perci' x's flowered, mainly with other standard catt's & they have been ok. Color wise with this is vey good, shape wise for a compact is lacking heaps..but.. its a pretty flower.

    Substance and the small lip I guess.
    Sorry for the late answer. I was traveling.
