Probably the best compact Cattleya in the world today ! Delightfully fragrant and compact, it will grow happily under lower light Phalaenopsis conditions. This exquisite hybrid has multiple species in its immediate breeding background: C. loddigesii, C. aurantiaca, C. harrisoniana, C. trianae, C. labiata, C. coccinea and C. cinnabarina. Its heavy substance full-form pink flowers can be produced twice a year on a fully mature plant, the flowers lasting for months. When first opening during the cooler winter months under lower light, the flowers first appear as light pink, later maturing to a vivid pink (as seen in the photo) under brighter light and warmer growing conditions.  A deserving winner of the Best Mini Catt and a blue ribbon at a recent Taiwan International Orchid Society Show. Highly Recommended !
