Cattleya Orchid Seedling SVO10036 (Pot. Rubescence 'SVO' AM/AOS x Slc. Sacramento Jewel 'SVO')

Regular price $14.50

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Hybrid seedling plant in a 50mm tube.

I have not made a cross all the way back to the shapely, deep red Rubescence for a while, but this year we did several.  In this case, we felt the addition of the crazy round flower of Sacramento Jewel (Slc. Tangerine Jewel x Lc. Sacramento Rose) combined with its small stature has significant potential. Our expectation for this grex is mini-Catt-sized plants standing 4” tall which will begin to bloom in 3” pots.  The 2.5” flowers will be dark red with a fantastic round form.

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.
