    That's a gorgeous color combination not commonly seen in this species. Pretty decent form and nice flat flowers too. Thanks for posting.

    Thank you Katherine! I am growing these in 3in plastic pots with sphagnum moss. The cross is Broughtonia sanguinea var aquinii var aurea "Betty" x "Sunset". From a grower in central Florida. I'd recommend getting one for sure!

    I sure would if I could find it!

    Could you message me the name of the grower, please?

    Well, at least it could be true to name... I paid an arm and a leg for a supposed aurea at the last London show, and it has flowered with dirty pink flowers about as big as my finger nail . I intend to try and contact the seller, a guy from one of the less usual European countries (less usual for being the source of orchid dealers) and have a whinge...
    I saw the type species growing in Jamaica - went there from a cruise ship, to do rafting in the Rio Ochos. The plants grow on trees arching across the river, way above your head, so you like back with binoculars and stare at these lovely things way out of reach. But places where you get on or off the rafts they are tied to telegraph poles or nailed to the barn doors...raising serious thoughts about illegal activities in my mind. The flowers then as much as 2 inches north south. I have never done much better than half that size ... Probably lack of Caribbean sun.

    I would like to have some of the seedlings.
    This cross is a must have for orchid lovers.
