    Default Cattleya Orange Nugget

    When I bought this plant it was labelled Lc Orange Nugget but now I have been told it is C Orange Nugget........ . This is the first bloom for me, with 6 flowers, each measuring 2 inches (5cm) across. I took this picture 10 days ago before I left for a short holiday to our highland resort (Cameron Highlands). I just returned home yesterday and found that the colour of the blooms has intensified to a darker shade of orange.

    That really is excellent color. Trying to resolve the name, this appears to be Rth. Orange Nuggett.

    There is no Cattleya alliance hybrid named Orange Nugget, with one t at the end.

    Most likely, this is Orange Nuggett, with double t at the end. But it never was Lc. and it is not C. now. Originally registered as Blc. Now it is Rth. (Rhyncattleanthe).

    There is another hybrid often confused with Orange Nuggett, called Fuchs Orange Nuggett (Orange Nugget x Viola Sanjume). It was also Blc. when registered, and Rth. now. They can be hard to tell apart.

    Recently registered, there is also Rth. Hsinying Orange Nuggett (Fuchs Orange Nuggett x Shinfong Little Sun). Since Shinfong Little Sun also has Orange Nuggett as an ancestor, this could look very similar too.

    I'm glad my obsession can sometimes be useful to others. You grow so many impressive plants, and your photos are always worth a look.
