    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.

    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...

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

    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.

    Cattleya mossiae pentaflamea ‘Cerro Verde’

    I thought I’d share the most beautiful mossiae flamea I have ever seen, from the line breeding of Armando Mantellini of Cerro Verde nursery. Currently in bloom at their nursery in Florida. I was lucky to secure a division to pick up next month at the Tamiami show. (Pictures from Cerro...

    Cattleya lueddemaniana var coerulea flamea ‘Marmalade Blue’

    Received this division from Brazil from the nursery Orquidário Americana in 2020. Finally it grew strong enough to bloom. Amazing flamea in a coerulea form of this lovely species. Almost pentaflamea with the mini brush strokes in sepals.

    Cattleya rex flameas: The Holy Grail

    So after a decade of searching (and pleading), I finally secured two rex flameas from Peru! It is my all time favourite of all flameas, my holy grail! Presenting not one but two plants! First one is rex flamea ‘Yawar Saywar’, rounder and fuller petals. Second one is rex flamea ‘Flameada en...

    Cattleya lueddemaniana coerulea flamea ‘Lukamee’

    First bloom of a division plant from the collection of Orquidário Americana in Brazil. Just lovely I think! I named it on a play of words. Can anybody guess what it says?

    Cattleya warneri tipo flamea ‘Star of Brazil’

    Hey folks! Just want to share my excitement about just ‘procuring’ another beautiful flower/plant recently from Brazil. As some of you might know, warneri is my favourite cattleya species. And, flamea my fave colour form. So the combo is a dream!! Look at this beauty! I named her in...

    Cattleya mossiae semialba flamea ‘SUPERNOVA’

    One of my best flameas in my collection with 4 flowers and 4 buds… I named her SUPERNOVA because it looks like an explosion… huge at 7 inches!

    Cattleya trianae coerulea flamea

    One of the rarer color forms of this species. The blue flamea markings are quite large and deep in color. Will be useful in future breeding for this type. Plant arrived November about 4 months ago, rooted and bloomed (upside down lol). Still not as strong yet to reach potential flower form...

    Cattleya lueddemaniana pincelada with 5 point Flares!

    This is perhaps my most favorite lueddemaniana for the past 5 years. It is light pink with magenta flaring on all five segments, each a pincelada streak. Some call it a 5 point star lol. The lip is nicely marked with two yellow eyes. Flower shape is very round. Size is respectable at 14 cm NS...
