    Default Cattleya Brabantiae

    This cross is a real old-timer. According to what I read online, this cross between C. aclandiae and C. loddigesii,was registered by J. Veich & sons in 1863!! They were one of the original “greats” in orchid hybridizing.

    C. Brabantiae has earned 26 AOS awards, has been a parent in 70 crosses, and a “grandparent” of over 170 crosses. This cross has been remade multiple times, so the plants one buys today are not from the original, but the name still applies. Supposedly, its a prolific bloomer, with a nice fragrance, though this is the first time mine has bloomed (maybe it was too young before). It has 3 blooms this year.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks, all. Bruce, yes, this one is deeper in color, and less-spotted than most I have seen.
