Well-established seedlings in 2.25" pots. 6-12 months from blooming.This is a rare plant and I currently don't have any photos but a google image search will find a few. I did include a picture of each parent. This is a remake of Brassocattleya Valencia Beauty using 2 great, large-flowered parents. The flowers will be star-shaped with long, slender petals and sepals and a broad, flat lip. The sepals and petals will be very light purple-pink with the possibility of dark, random purple spotting. The lip will also be light purple-pink but with many more purple markings. There is the possibility these flowers will be fragrant.Care: Bright indirect light, cool-warm temps, regular watering and fertilizer spring-fall, and let dry between light waterings in the winter.
