Cattleya walkeriana 'Purple Plane'

Cattleya walkeriana 'Purple Plane' has only one weak lead

Cattleya walkeriana 'Purple Plane' - Plant photo by Richard LindbergCattleya walkeriana grows in Brazil. It is fragrant and needs bright light. It doesn't like to be disturbed.

This plant is about to be disturbed, very much disturbed. After two growing seasons it has developed only a single lead. A very weak one.

I could not find any information or a picture of this color variation. However, it is from Sea God nursery so it is a good plant. I am going to take it apart and try to get the pieces sprouted. There is another pseudobulb on another part of the plant that may develop a lead.


  1. Sea God Nursery must have been great. I emailed Raymond Burr Vineyards seeking info on a possible lead on Lc Caprice. I must have that one. They said they knew of no clones. Guess you are my only hope.

  2. Sea Gods Nursery WAS great for many years. It is a shadow of its former self, not selling and more a feature of the winery than a working nursery.

    I don't know exactly when a piece of Caprice will be available. It has only now finished blooming and I have not determined how it can be divided.
