    Cattleya Sonia Altenburg

    C. Sonia Altenburg is a hybrid made with the primary hybrid C. Enid and C.Nerto.
    This time the plant has 4 flowers showing very clear the influence of C. mossiae and C. labiata.
    From C. mossiae the flower got the little streaks radiating from the lip center to the lip edges.
    From C. labiata the flower got the shape clearly detectable by the shape of the petals.

    Quite nice Horst. There is something about white Catt flowers with colored lips that make them look wonderful.

    Gorgeous, Horst! The white is so clean. I haven't much experience with cattleyas but I acquired some lately and I hope I do well.

    I would rate this a very successful cross. I love the streaky influence of the mossiae lip.
