    Default Cattlianthe Precious Beauty 'Mata Hari'

    This is the first mini-cattleya plant I bought over 14 years ago as a compot seedling and it blooms every year right before Valentine's Day. It is now specimen size and fills a 6" pot. Cattlianthe Precious Beauty 'Mata Hari' (was a seed grown plant so the clonal name is mine )

    Nice vibrant red! I love the touch of yellow and the sprinkling of spots!

    Thank you. I did not know Mata Hari meant anything in any language. I named it after the spy. How fitting this plant has a "sun" type name. Mata Hari - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
