Bow Bells x Celia

I had to jump on the classic white cattleya bandwagon. Even though this is a recent addition to the collection.

A meristem picked up from Waldor. Received it at the beginning of August in sheath. I’m always amazed when the sheaths produce buds after shipping and a change in growing environments. It’s incredibly well grown and I’m looking forward to growing it up. I’ve added a few shots from when it first opened and then a few outside of the grow room from today, to get it under natural light. Very fragrant.

Thanks for keeping the bandwagon going, it’s beautiful! I too could stare at these heirloom whites all day! And Waldor is top-notch!

The parent other than Bow Bells is listed as Celia, not Cella. Cattleya Celia is bringing in a strong dose of loddigesii, some warneri, and lueddemaniana, three different species that are in Bow Bells. Since Bow Bells was registered in 1945 and Pearl Harbor in 1951, it must be one of the first hybrids made with Bow Bells, maybe even before it was registered.

Ha. Thanks for the correction. I’ll double check the tag to make sure it’s not a typo. Most likely a piece of dirt completing the ‘l’.
