Cattleya Laurie Lynn Westenberger

It is the cross of C Bob Betts x C Claesiana registered with the RHS in 1958. I am leaning toward keeping one of these in my collection, but I don't need to give my final answer just yet. I have four divisions.

This plant is in sphagnum over peanuts in a 3 1/2-inch clay pot. There are six pseudobulbs and stands eight inches above the pot. I popped it out of the pot and the roots are great. It will be on Ebay this week.

I am still working on my system for my categories. It still needs work. I decided on three Catts to be sold two weeks ago but I don't remember which the were. I now have a tag color scheme combined with reserved growing space that might do the job.

  2. I lost my bid on eBay for this cattleya which I really like. Will you have another one coming up? Thank you.

    1. Yes, at some point this summer. Most of the large Catt hybrids will go. I don't know when.
