Laeliocattleya Coastal Sunrise

Friday, at the NVOS meeting I won this plant at the raffle table. The choice was limited and I was wary of a plant that needs two stakes to hold it up.

This plant is now potted in sphagnum over peanuts in a clay pot.It is the cross Laelia anceps x Cattleya Helen Veliz registered by Stewart in 1987. I have decided to make it a collection plant after seeing pictures on the internet.

    1. I have not sent anything out to flask, but have tried buying a couple of flasks. The seedlings need a lot of attention and I have not been that successful.

  2. I want to try it just for chuckles once. My Chocolate Encyclias have produced some seedpots for me. I found some home made methods and may be it works.
