Default Cattleya jenmanii 'Eileen'

A reliable Fall bloomer with a wonderful fragrance. I learned it does best when grown in as bright a light as possible without burning.

I wonder if that counts as a rubra variety? Either way, it sure looks good!

Thanks orchid lovers! Isurus, I bought this from a small So. American vendor at the Redland Festival in 2006. It was labeled 'Teresia X Rosa'. 'Rosa' is quite dark from pictures online. A magical thing about this orchid is that the color varies from year to year and I learned that bright, bright light makes for dark colors and stronger fragrance. The first year she bloomed for me there was a strong contrast between the dark lip and lighter petals. [IMG]

I think it's just short of rubra and a hair darker than v. tipo most years.
isurus79 and silken like this.

Mokeck, your jenmanii is beautiful! It's one of the best I've seen. You can't beat that jenmanii fragrance. Good growing.
