Incredible, Leslie. How do you decide when pincelada becomes flamea?
Pincelada is mini flecks, like a tiny stroke of a paintbrush. Flamea is broad bold stripes or more.

I bought as seedling from a hobbyist in US who thinks he got from Armando Mantellini. I suspect it’s a ‘Featherstone’ x sib.

Thanks for sharing, stunning. What great luck producing this flower from a seedling. I love the name.

Excellent presentation! Have you shown it for judging?
Unfortunately our first judging since COVID starts July 17th, about 6 weeks from now. The flowers won’t be in prime then, or have withered from the heat and low humidity.

I have periodically wondered how many fantastic orchids never got judged just because they never bloomed at the right time for a convenient judging!

I can say at least 1/2 of my collection personally lol. Of the 250 cattleyas I have, maybe half is awardable but I could only show perhaps 10, and I think 6 were awarded. Same for my Paphs.
