Presenting the Jewel of my Cattleya Collection.

Huge flower (17.5 cm NS) with good flat shape and great flamea markings. I received the AM 80 point award in 2016… was 15.4 cm then… need to upgrade lol. Enjoy!

The valid name is wallisii and eldorado a synonym. But I and many collectors still prefer eldorado, a name that confers its preciousness, and the myths and legends connected to the Aztec gold.

The only plant I would save in a fire FYI 😂.

You need to get this judged!!!
Thanks SB.

Unfortunately judging is slow to start here and the first one is 11 days from now. This flower has been open 7 days, so won’t make it. Maybe on the other new growths?
