Cattlianthe Molly Tyler

Lc Molly Tyler is a cross made by Oliver Lines and registered to the collection's owner, F. E. Dixon in 1930. It is beautiful, if a bit small by today's standards.

This is part of Lillian's collection. I am sure that this plant came from Sea God Nursery but can't trace it further back. Howerver, Sea God Nursery had been in business long enough that it could easily been acquired from Lines Orchids directly. It is fun to think about an orchid's history even if it is not well documented.
