Cattleya Mom's Favorite

Cattleya Mom's FavoriteCattleya Mom's FavoriteMom's Favorite is not the 'real' name of this fragrant hybrid, but it is Steve Christoffersen's mom's favorite among his plants, hense the name. He has had it a long, long time and the tag is long ago lost.

The piece I have is a little rough looking. I got it in late 2011 and it bloomed last spring. This year's growth is outside the pot and so I will divide it after blooming ends. There will be backbulb divisions available. I'll let you know.

  1. Hi Richard! It's a very beautiful Cattleya hybrid! I have a similar plant, but with some purple in the lip. Congratulations for this very successful blog! All the best!
