Default Cattleya mossiae season begins

This is a first-bloom seedling (although, honestly, it's a little too much of a beast to really qualify as a seedling), and I'm pretty pleased with the size and shape. The lip is especially nice.

Wow, this is beautiful! I expect good things in subsequent bloomings. Who is the breeder?

Hi, Steve. Thank you for the feedback. The breeder was Steven Christoffersen in Northern California.

Yes, the lip is lovely. The glow of the darker color deep inside is striking.
