Cattleya Species

Collecting select and awarded Cattleya species has been a passion of mine for many years. The collection now contains over 700 selected plants!  Recently, I started breeding the “best of the best” in an effort to provide these superior and often hard to find Cattleya species available for the hobbyist.

SVO 8145     NEW    
(L. anceps ('Helen' x 'Walburn') 'Ruben's' x L. anceps 'South Africa')
The cultivar ‘Ruben’s’ has excellent shape and 5 flowers on an inflorescence, it hails from the famous breeding at Cal Orchid.  ‘South Africa’ is a very fine example of modern breeding with rounded petal tips and a beautiful dark lip. Excellent shaped flowers with 4-5 per inflorescence.

SVO 8156     NEW    
(L. anceps 'SanBar Pink Inspiration' x L. anceps 'South Africa')
'SanBar Pink Inspiration’ has particularly wide petals and this breeding line developed at SBOE has won many awards. ‘South Africa’ is a fine example of modern breeding with rounded petal tips and a beautiful dark lip. This cross is all about flower shape: I am expecting the best from both parents. As a bonus, when these are mature, the plants will bloom 4-5 flowers per inflorescence.

(L. anceps 'SanBar Pinkie' HCC/AOS x L. anceps 'South Africa')
'SanBar Pinkie’ is an awarded plant from the breeding line developed at SBOE and is a sister to 'SanBar Pink Inspiration'. ‘South Africa’ is a fine example of modern breeding with rounded petal tips and a beautiful dark lip. Like SVO 8156, this cross is all about flower shape. As a bonus, these plants will bloom 4-5 flowers per inflorescence.

SVO 9674     NEW    
(L. anceps 'Disciplinata' HCC/AOS x L. anceps 'Gigas Flair')
‘Disciplinata’ is one of the original and still considered by many as they type for fma. lineata anceps.  By crossing it to ‘Gigas Flair’ with its outrageously wide petals might just deliver the best shaped lineata types seen….

SVO 9673     NEW    
(L. anceps 'Gigas Flair' x L. anceps 'Ultimo')

‘Gigas Flair’ parents are 'SVO Flair' x 'Gigas'. Both parents are diploid and were wild collected years ago.  For a diploid, ‘Gigas Flair is outstanding, the wide petals are to die for! ‘Ultimo’ is a 4n and needs little introduction; it was popularized by Cal-Orchid and sired many fine cultivars. This combination is designed for improved flower shape and color, with wide petals, dark colored flowers and a bit of darker flaring on the tips of the petals. Expect mature plants to produce 4 and possibly 5 flowers.

SVO 9537     NEW    
(Aslla. gigantea 'Nelspruit' x Aslla. gigantea 'Dark Warrior')

‘Nelspruit’ is also a new addition from Afri-Orchids noted breeding lines; it has an outstanding flower count, heavily branched inflorescences and flowers with nearly solid color, with just a little yellow showing through. Of special note is the dark color on the side of the lip, which is rare in Ansellias. Could ‘Nelspruit’ be the key to unlock and develop sold dark flower color? ‘Dark Warrior’ has massive flowers, wide segments and coalescing boldly colored spotting with a branching upright inflorescence. This pairing is targeting for nearly solid dark colored flowers, and lots of them!
