    Default Blc Debbie's Blue Diamond

    Here are some images of my cross of C. Suzanne Hye 'Blue Reign' x Blc Volcano Blue 'Volcano Queen'. Three different plants, and one showing the whole spike. Suzanne Hye has large standard size flowers while Volcano Blue has darker color and more flowers (smaller size). The combination of the two came out as expected, with color darker and more flowers per spike than Suzanne Hye, larger size than Volcano Blue. Shape has been intermediate between the two parents.

    very beautiful. Blue cattleya are one of my favorite. How many seedlings you have? How long it take to reach blooming size from pollination?

    Didn't make too many seedlings, so maybe have another 10 that haven't bloomed yet. Pollinated in 4/09 and first to bloom was 2013.

    A very lovely blue catt and so floriferous. Congratulations again on a very successful 'blue' breeding programme.
