    Cool Blc. Cumberland Beauty 'Regal Jewel'

    This one is in bloom again, only with a much better flower count. There are another three leads coming along that should throw buds as well shortly.

    I know, since the latest changes of some of the species in to different genera, nomenclature it isn't easy at all.
    That's why I want to explain some of the changes in regard to your question.

    The old intergeneric combination for this hybrid was Blc. (Brassavola+Laelia+Cattleya).
    In this case yes, Laelia stands for Laelia tenebrosa.

    Laelia tenebrosa was moved to the Cattleya genera and is officially Cattleya tenebrosa.

    The new intergeneric combination of this hybrid is Rhyncattleanthe (Rhyncholaelia+Cattleya+Guarianthe)
    Rhyncholaelia stays for Rhyncholaelia digbyana
    Guarianthe stays for Guarianthe aurantiaca
    Cattleya stays for all the other species from the Cattleya genera which are many as Connie pointed out already.

    C. tenebrosa without any doubt helps to get the orange-brown sepals and petals.
    We also know C. bicolor and C. guttata varieties with brown sepals and petal.
    Probably this exciting orange-brown color is coming from more species rather than from only C. tenebrosa.

    Very beautiful this orange-brown color and the yellow on the lip is a perfect match to it.

    Lot's of great flowers. Very nice. This is the time of year, in Florida, when those cluster blooming cattleyas like to show off. I like the way you grow your cattleyas. My cattleyas are doing much better since I moved most of them to wood baskets. Good growing.

    Actually; the real reason I began moving my big cattleya to baskets is because when you have a huge rolling rack moving along a walkway made of paving blocks....those big heavy wood baskets keep all the plants in pots from pitching over onto the ground and breaking. LOL And yes; some do grow better in baskets. But honestly, the baskets are to sit at the edges of the shelves to keep the pots from falling. I try to put my biggest catt's in the baskets, but some of them prefer a nice clay pot. And every plant that Rich gave me originally arrived in baskets. This is one of them...Rich's plants are just the best! I only have a couple of his that haven't bloomed yet.
