    Default Cattleya Bella del Caribe formerly C. Angelís Fantasy x C. Beaufort

    I must have been a good boy this year because my wish came true...on Christmas even. I have now bloomed all six seedlings I purchased from this new cross and finally a great one. Number 5 is awesome all around. First of all, it has my favorite growth habit of the bunch. Quite small and neat with absolutely no stair stepping (which I love.) The new pseudobulbs are fat and glossy and medium green. This smallest plant of the bunch also has the largest flower by quite a bit. Best and brightest color as well. Also quite good substance. The 2 flowers are a little over 3 1/4Ē across on a plant that stands about 4Ē tall. Both displayed on one strong inflorescence with no staking. Not bad for a first bloom. I am quite smitten and super excited to get a good clone from this crossing. In addition, I saw online that the grower has also finally registered the cross, which was a nice surprise. Happy New Year everyone!

    Thanks Sheryl. Orange is my favorite color. You know how it is. Hard to capture how this one looks in person. All the veining and flaring is like a hot deep watermelon color laid over bright yellow. The effect comes off as orange.
