I thought I’d share the most beautiful mossiae flamea I have ever seen, from the line breeding of Armando Mantellini of Cerro Verde nursery. Currently in bloom at their nursery in Florida.

I was lucky to secure a division to pick up next month at the Tamiami show.

Why am I not surprised? Just stunning. Is this the one that he showed as the finale of his breeding programme in the 6th Cattleya congress presentation that online?
Hehe I actually preordered the division before it bloomed.

That's a good question whether it was highlighted in the symposium on Cattleya mossiae. I will get back to you on that.
