    I repotted this earlier in year, produced 2 nice new canes but less than previous in size. Both flowering, this lot out & other buds can be seen behind flowers.
    Not the worlds best but I like it for the colour in flower & lip. I have used it in breeding also.

    Man, that is a stunning cattleya, Roy. I love the coloring in the blooms.

    That's the main reason I bought it & keep it. The nursery I bought it from, in flower on a very small plant, didn't like it.
    You don't come across a Catt like this every day. As I said, not a world beater but one most growers would & do want.
    I have crossed it with a nice big yellow Rlc. Looking forward to seeing the results. (will be some time tho)

    A very harmonious transition of colours. Is it named after our "Brutal Bruce?
