Hybrid by Fred Clarke, Sunset Valley Orchids.

Sl. Minipet

This is one of the best solid red mini-catts available and will easily bloom in 3” pots. Both of the parents are tetraploids, which will create an excellent flower form.  Orpetii is a primary hybrid (L. pumila x Soph. coccinea), and coccinea 'Hidden Treasure' originated at ‘Gold Country Orchids’ and is one of the very best, with perfectly flat 3” flowers.  The genetic makeup of this grex is approximately 75% Sophronitis and 25% Laelia.  These look like super good Soph. coccineas and are proving to have larger flowers than the original cross.  As a bonus, the plants are much easier to grow and bloom than either parent.
