    Cattleya warneri var albescent ‘Dona Lourdes’

    Flowering this year with 3 flowers, though smaller than when it had 2 flowers. NS 13 cm. Love the Sakura pink petals and the contrasting white lip with lime green throat. And so fragrant like fresh lilies.

    Cattleya warneri alba ‘Holy Trinity’

    In bloom in Brazil are these 3 lovely alba flowers of one of my favourite species. I named it ‘Holy Trinity’ because it has 3 angelic flowers on a tall stem, reminding me of the divinity of Mother Nature.

    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 warneri coerulea

    Not the best flowering of this plant but it was stuck in a corner while back. More light will produce better blooms. Bad Papa here 🥲.

    Cattleya warneri coerulea

    A winter blooming unifoliate Cattleya species with massive 20 cm (8 inches) blooms. The petals are so big and heavy the midrib bends to the gravity, giving it a soft droopy look. On a smaller bloom in previous years, this droop was a lot less. But alas, is size or form better? That is the...

    Cattleya warneri coerulea

    Warneris have one of the largest cattleya flowers of the species (next to mossiaes), up to 20 cm (around 8 inches) in natural spread. Although they don’t have the full round petals of the hybrids, they make it up with their delicate colouring and fragrance. One of my favourite of the genera...
