    Cattleya trianae pelorica ‘Kaleidoscope’

    The most colorful trianae in my collection. Peeking from behind the leaves lol. I will try to cross it with my bicolor peloric trianae (below). Let’s hope they get along well and play nice lol,

    Cattleya walkeriana pelorica ‘Cat’s Eye’

    I finally bloomed a walkeriana (first time ever) …. using Fred Allen’s clay pellets in shallow clay pot method (Thanks Fred!). It’s the peloric version with petals that resemble the lip. The pattern is so hypnotic. Only one flower as plant is still establishing and need to get stronger...

    Cattleya percivaliana peloric in Bud!!!

    I decided to move my percivaliana peloric to another location and it triggered a new growth. This was out of season and so I thought the growth would be sheathless. But it surprised me with a sheath and buds right after! Not sure if this is normal but it’s going to bloom 6 months after it’s...

    Cuppy (peloric?) Brachypetalum hybrid

    Paph. Payakka Kodkod (concolor x thaianum) purchased in-bud this past summer (July 2020): Same plant, bloomed again January 2021 while carrying a seedpod: Thoughts? When it was blooming the second time around the petals were so cuppy that they needed a little nudge to allow the flower to...

    Cattleya trianae fm. pelorica

    I was pleasantly surprised when these flowers opened with such wild colour patterns. The petals mimicked the lip (thus the peloric variety), making the yellow flares look like eyes. And to think it came from a line breeding of the rare trianae peloric ‘Lia’ (was sold for USD$20,000 when it was...
