Cattleya Orchid Hybrid SVO10678 (C. Hot Spot 'Royal Basin Speckles' AM/AOS x Bl. Richard Mueller '4n')

Regular price $13.50

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

Our past experience breeding Richard Mueller to spotted parents has been successful. Here we decided to use Hot Spot (C. Black Jack x C. Mark Jones) which has lots of large flowers, up to 9 on a stem, and the flowers are peppered in fine spotting all framed by a red lip. Breeding with Richard Mueller (B. nodosa x L. milleri) strongly influences flower shape and transmits spotted lips.   The offspring from this mating will have starry-shaped flowers peppered with dense spotting, lips will be red with the flowers displayed in clusters of 5-7 above the foliage.

Imported Seedling from Sunset Valley Orchids, USA. Picture shows the parent of this cross. The above description was written by Fred Clarke and details the expectation of this hybrid.
