    Cattleya rex (Flamea) ‘Andean Treasure’ FCC/AOS

    We awarded this spectacular round and relatively flat 5 flowers on one inflorescence plant an FCC of 90 points today at the Lima show in Peru. Let me know why you think we did that lol. Note: the flamea part of name is more of a guide than actual true flamea. The flower presented with a...

    Cattleyas Awards (Cali Show, Colombia)

    Our team awarded these two beautiful cattleya species I thought ST cattleya fans might enjoy to see. Cattleya trianae (var rosada) AM 83 points What’s special is that the flower open a white semialba and turns rosada (pinkish) after a few days. One spike was white and other matured spike...

    Cattleya violacea semialba flamea ‘Serendipity’

    This is one of my seedlings from Bela Vista’s breeding that bloomed at Orquidário Americana nursery in Brazil. The flamea coloration only on the petals make the contrast very striking. The shape is also very good with a flat lip that doesn’t curl much with age. Likely in a few years, the...

    Cattleya amethystoglossa flamea

    One of my favorite Cattleya amethystoglossa just bloomed. A rare flamea version from the breeding of the famous Caliman lineage. (Almost looks like to have an aurea yellow background) The flamea marking is smooth and velvety with no spots. Still looking for a name to call it. Any ideas?

    A very reliable annual bloomer, this hot growing, high light species has stunning dark blue lip and petal flamea markings. Still opening and stretching, so more pics in a few days.

    Cattleya mendelii var flamea (?)

    Flowered beautifully by DaveB, my mendelii is showing flaring on some flowers. This is surprising as it was not expected. Because the flares were not that particularly strong on some flowers as well as missing in some other flowers, I put a question mark on it after name. Consistency is needed...

    Cattleya walkeriana fm. semialba hv. perola (fm. flamea?) ‘Cherry Lips’

    This is likely my most beautiful walkeriana color form. The variety is confusing as it has a white base and red lip (semialba) but has a blush pink (perola or pearl tint) that looks like a flamea. Depending on which expert or region in Brazil, they will call it a different color variety...

    Cattleya purpurata flamea ‘Canaima’s Amigos’

    One of my darkest purpuratas beautifully flowered by DaveB. The lip is the darkest rubra type lip I have ever seen. NS 15 cm. Was passed at judging today because it needed more flowers. The average was 4-5 flowers per inflorescence. Next year then!

    Cattleya trianae coerulea flamea ‘Blue Flames’

    Are you all sitting down? Get a coffee or a nice wine and lounge on a nice chair. And let me know what you think of this: My Brazilian friend and fantastic grower Anderson just sent me a pic of my trianae coerulea flamea that shocked me at the beauty. I was speechless! At 13 cm and only one...

    Cattleya eldorado flamea ‘Flor de Gaia’

    One of the most beautiful eldorado cultivars I have ever seen. Such bright fuschia color on the petals, contrasting with the pink sepals. It’s the cultivar that made me fall in love again with this species (again). I love it so much I’m acquiring 4 divisions from different sources! Am I crazy...

    Cattleya violacea semialba flamea ‘Stars and Stripes’

    Love the color combo of this so I named it such. Good flat shape in sepals and petals but that curled lip is disturbing to me lolzzz. Blooming in Brazil at my buddy’s backyard.

    Cattleya warneri pentaflamea ‘Queen of the Amazonias’

    My plant flowering in Brazil, awaiting papers for immigration lol. Beautiful tipo warneri with flares on all five extremities.

    Mystery Warneri

    So I couldn’t find any tag on pot but know it’s on the warneri section. Has the same wide thick leaves. Tag must have fallen somehow. The investigation of this mystery plant continues. Might be a division from Tamiami or Brazil. Or a seedling cross from AWZ. Flamea, atropurpurea (solid) lip...

    Cattleya lueddemaniana flamea coerulea

    Another division I got from Orquidário Americana in 2020 (#3638). Very dark lip and big flamea. Quite lovely.

    Cattleya lueddemaniana flamea

    Just opening! Might be pentaflamea but let’s see in a few days. Original division from Orquidário Americana (they import all over the world). Wonky at the moment lol.

    Cattleya lueddemaniana flamea ‘Quad Dragon’

    A nice flamea with wide petals and very strong flamea. A division from Orquidário Americana breeding lines. NS 17 cm. Still stretching I think lol. Unfortunately only one flower since first bloom after establishing. Judging requires two flowers so next year then.
