Default C. Green Emerald 'Queen'

Hey everybody. I ran across this beautiful plant at a nearby orchid wholesale store and couldnt resist it and it jumped right into my hands forced me on over to the cash register and made me take it home!!

Tag reads C. Green Emerald 'Queen' .. I am interested in what the family chain looks like. I know already that it a cross between Blc. Elizabeth mahon & and Slc. Thospol Spot. But i cannot find what the parents are for these two and so on. If anybody can help me with this i would greatly appreciate it.

It is just an interest to me, no fancy reason why i want to know :P.. I meannn the plant basically forced its way into my life so i might as well know something about it hahaa

Ben

C. Green Emerald 'Queen' is a pale green with maroon spots and a pink and white lip. It is pure Cattleya (by any definition of Cattleya), no Blc. and Slc. involved.

From OrchidWiz:

C. Elizabeth Mahon = intermedia x Little Angel
C. Little Angel = Obrieniana x loddigesii
C. Obrieniana = x dolosa x loddigesii

C. Thospol Spot = Bimayothin x aclandiae
C. Bimayothin = Priscilla Ward x aclandiae
C. Priscilla Ward = granulosa x forbesii

Even without a program like OrchidWiz you can always work through a family tree step by step at:

The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening
