Cattleya Orchid Seedling SVO 10668 (Lc. Sandra Laura 'SVO' AM/AOS x C. harrisoniana 'Volcano Diamond')

Regular price $13.50

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

Hot pink flowers with yellow lips….. easy to write, much harder to breed for.  Sandra Laura (Lc. Pink Treasure x C. Orchidglade) has been the best pink flower with yellow lips we have produced. C. harrisoniana is known to impart yellow lip colour to its progeny added to that ‘Volcano Diamond’ has dark pink flowers and it’s a tetraploid too. With this cross, we are expecting the pink colours and yellow lips of the parents to complement each other. The flower size will be about 3” across with 7-9 blooms per stem.  A very novel colour combination. 

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.
