    Look what you've started...or at least encouraged...Clint!

    It is a lovely Catt! Lots of Sophronitis in it, which gives the bright orange and the small, characteristic shape.

    Actually I just looked it up. It's 28% Soph coccinea (orange), with lesser amounts of Catt aurantiaca (orange) and Laelias (like the very orange Laelia cinnibarina). It's pretty interesting, in each of its six breeding generations, these three species were continually crossed back into the mix. This is definitely line breeding for an orange Catt at its best!

    Could be developed into an interesting article on breeding for color in cattleyas. I think an article on breeding for color in cattleyas would actually be really interesting. My friend, Tom Larkin, was big into crossing paphs and phrags and says that the next 'big thing' in hybridizing will be a return to the cattleya (for color, size, and ease of home window growing.) So, even though you make a joke about it, I think it would be really interesting to know some of the science behind it.

    Default *SMILE*

    I'm not much of an article writer--and I do admit I have no experience in breeding any orchids, let alone catts.

    However, to help out. I did do an orchid pedigree by hand (which I always do for hybrids..you should see how crowded and messy some of them are). I know, it's obsesssing a bit, but I do enjoy it.

    This could help Julie out in writing that article...generation by generation... It would be really cool if you could find pics of all the hybrids and use pictures in the pedigree instead of words and maybe do a bit of guessing as to why the hybridizer chose to cross certain plants. I don't know. Sounds like fun though!
