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?
 
Another rare and stunning clone Leslie! Are you growing this one yourself?
No, this is still in Brazil. I purchased it last year in bloom.

It’s expertly grown and beautifully photographed by my friend Anderson. He’s a much better grower than me. 😂

Hopefully I will get it next year. I can’t ship it now as I want it to hold a pod when it’s sib with another flamea.

My husband suggests ‘Purple Passion’. My suggestion is ‘Fancy Flamea’ or ‘Velvet Flame’
 
Here are two more from my Brazil collection that just bloomed.

This is the coerulea:

This is from a cross of two different color forms: rubra x coerulea. Might be the gateway plant to get darker blues.

I’ll be crossing these 3 plants in combination to see what I can produce… maybe a dark blue coerulea flamea!!
