Beautiful, although I don't like when petals cover the base of the dorsal sepal hints my dislike of overlapping hybrids my favorite set is for sure the Venezuelan Catts but with line-breeding some individuals have picked up this (in my opinion) undesirable trate.

You’re right, it’s now developing for overlapping petals. There’s purists that prefer only natural wild plants, not lined bred ones. You might be one!

I do prefer jungle collected plants with their floppy petals but there so hard to find.
