    I've had that happen a few times. I don't know what causes it. I have a Roy's Magic also. I think it's a great little cattleya.

    Is the coloring supposed to be like that? If so, this is a really cool and different bloom. I like it! Hopefully you will be more satisfied with the next bloom.

    I think the damage is by Insect. Will flower again & see what happens.
    How many flowers per head do you get Jeff?

    It looks fungal damage to me. Nice little hybrid, is it a burana beauty offspring?

    It is a BB off spring Amey. On closer inspection I think a bug entered the bud & did this. Found some tell tale marks.

    The name surprised me ... looks a lot like Pot. Burana Beauty 'Burana'. Had you not informed me differently, I would have simply assumed it was Burana.

    Too bad about the bug damage. Lovely flower other than that.
