    Default Paph. Conco Lucia

    (Bella Lucia 'Bueno' x Conco-bellatulum 'Pert')

    Bella Lucia is (bellatulum x Wellesleyanum), where Wellesleyanum = (concolor x godefroyae). Conco-bellatulum is just what you'd expect: (concolor x bellatulum).

    So, overall, this hybrid is:

    %50 bellatulum
    %37.5 concolor
    %12.5 godefroyae




    The yellow from the concolor is expressed pretty strongly in this one. And the leaves are a bit different than usual for a Brachy, I think. Almost a bit bluish, with a more open mottling.

    I figured a full-plant view, from here, might be interesting—especially to those who don't grow or have much experience with many Brachypetalum. You can see here many attributes of the bellatulum parentage: short inflorescence, cuppy bloom, and a tendency to let the bloom rest on the medium. For reference, this is a 4" pot.
