Cattleya Carlos E. Ospina

Cattleya Carlos E. Ospina - Flower photo by Richard LindbergCattleya Carlos E. Ospina - Plant photo by Richard LindbergA nice surprise in the greenhouse was seeing the Catt hybrid with a flower open and a second as a bud. This is a plant that was in the waiting-for-repotting area and the last time I looked at it there was no developing spike.

The tag has Slc Jungle Jewel 'Mohave' AM/AOS x C Sandra Turner HCC/AOS. That makes for a long blog entry title so I checked the RHS Parentage Search to see if someone had registered this cross. In this case Fred Clark had indeed registered it in 2009. And since the plant was from Sunset Valley Orchids I left on the awards when listing the components.
