    Cattleya Ophir

    This is a Chadwick division of Cattlrya Ophir. This cross of xanthina x dowiana was first made around 1900 and remade by Art Chadwick in the 1990s. If you have the second edition of the Chadwicks' "Classic Cattleyas," you can find a photo on the back cover. Hoping this opens up a bit more.

    Cattleya Overgrowth Option

    Hello, A couple of months ago, I learned about some great presentations on the Odom's Orchids YouTube page. Keith Davis had some interesting observations and tips about cattleyas in his three videos. He discussed dealing with an overgrown cattleya by attaching a smaller pot filled with media to...

    Phrag. Professor Braem?

    Hello, I was given this orchid after helping Ivan from Equagenera unpack before the start of the Massachusetts Orchid Society show in October. Based on the photos, I am finding it hard to believe that my plant has even a hint of longifolium in its background. Maybe Hanne Popow? Not the best...

    D. Bougainville x spectabile

    These are photos from a plant purchased from H&R several months ago. Bougainville is a cross of Dendrobium johnsoniae and bigibbum. I was hoping for a little more latouria influence, but other examples suggest that phalaenopsis dendrobium genetics are dominant. The Bougainville photo on the H&R...

    Doritis pulcherrilum ?

    Hello, A couple of years ago, I purchased what I believed was a doritis cross (pulcherrima '#1' x pulcherrmia '#2') from Carter and Holmes. I have included a picture of the plant. The leaves are thick and stiff and lead me to wonder if this plant has psychosis in its background. Has anyone seen...
