    Rlc. Dandee Gem "Rubellite"

    2011 with 3 flowers, 2012 with 4 flowers and 2013 with 5 flowers can be considered a regular bloomer.
    Let's see next year. Maybe 6 or 7 flowers.
    All offspring of this cross produce clusters of more than 5 flowers. Although this specific plant got mainly C. intermedia genes and C. intermedia usually produce only 3 flowers each spike. Only under exceptional circumstances we can see 4 or 5 flowers on a C. intermedia spike.
    The dramatic contrast in between the white base color and the bright purple lip and splashes makes this plant an eye catcher.
    One more to keep and therefor it goes in to my collection.

    A very pretty splashed petal catt. Love the splashes which are not overstated.

    Very pretty! I've noticed that cattleyas with clusters of flowers, like yours, will tend to have more flowers per spike as the plant gets larger. It's a good reason not to divide the plant but let it get large.

    Very attractive, Horst. I like how bright and clean the white is ... as you mentioned, it makes a nice contrast to the purple splashes.

    Nice photo too, btw.
