    Default Laelia tenebrosa x Brassavola digbyana

    I wanted to show the very pretty color bands on my Laelia tenebrosa x Brassavola digbyana. I am not sure of the name of this hybrid. It hasn't bloomed yet but it is putting out three new leads! Very excited to see the flower.

    Brassolaelia (Bl.) Helen, or Rhyncholaeliocattleya (Rlc.) Helen in new terms. Should be much like a paler version of tenebrosa with a slightly fringed lip. Please do post pictures when it blooms.

    How is this one doing, Cody? Any sign of a spike or buds yet?

    cheers,

    It's growing well. Three new leads I believe but I think it's too small to bloom.
