    Default Cattleya Mini Green "Ochre"

    Cattleya Mini-Green "Ochre"

    A primary hybrid in between C. forbesii and C. tigrina.
    Now, my C. Mini-Green isn't green.
    I guess the hybridizer used a dark brown C. tigrina.
    Mixed with the yellowish green of the C. forbesii we got a beautiful ochre color.
    But who can be upset about this beautiful ochre color. Not many orchids I know have this color.

    Lovely, I love this color combination and bought yarn yesterday in these two colors to make a sweater or a baby blanket for a little girl. Still waiting on the definitive sonogram. - martha

    I do love the red ochre color. How large is the plant?

    Correctly C. Mini-green (with hyphen, small g) by the way.

    I know it. In my photo application it is written with hyphen.
    Maybe too much wine last night?
    Thanks for pointing out. Will be corrected.

    A very pretty cluster Horst. Color doesn't surprise me. So many C. tigrina/guttata to chose from. The name also isn't unusual, I have a Paph. Brecko Garnet. The original cross produced Garnet colored flowers but the remake, the breeder used the alba forms.
