It's lettuce time once again!

These buds are not from the same plant shown earlier this year in April.

Same 'clone' though!

This photo is taken in the early afternoon. More open!

Seen with our own eyes ------ the slightly darker lime-green colour in the throat region is sort of flourescent ----- quite interesting.

no idea who Helen Brown was but just like Cymbidium Memoria Marvin Gaye was named in memory of the musician Marvin Gaye I'm presuming this one was named in memory of her.
Looking great so far.

Thanks for mentioning Marvin Gaye. Definitely one of the music greats. I didn't know about the cym named after him until seeing your post. I think it's great - very fitting.

Regarding Helen Brown ------ it would be so nice if anybody in the orchid community knows who that particular Helen Brown is. The cross is known to have been registered by Fred A. Stewart Orchids Inc.

But that company is no longer around, and that owner is no longer around as well. And hard to say if anybody that is still around today knows about that particular Helen Brown. Maybe some information can be revealed by somebody in the future if there is some luck!

Very nice. I don't grow any cattleya hybrids, but I do have a soft spot for green ones--especially the big girls like this one. With a fair degree of Cattleya dowiana in its background is it safe to assume that it has a decent amount of fragrance?

I think this cross was made in the 60's so I'm guessing this Helen Brown will have been born in the 19th century and a bit before the time of Google records.

Tbh, I knew Marvin Gaye's songs but I did have to look him up to remind me once I got that Cymbidium I mentioned (tiny plant still) and that's when I discovered this Memoria trend amongst some of the names. When I first bought it the name didn't mean much to me at first but it makes it much more fitting to have a plant dedicated to a musician that I can play to the plant when it is feeling down

Cosmopolitan magazine had an Editor, Helen Gurley Brown, many decades ago. She had the reputation for advancing the "Sex and the city" lifestyle. Could be her?
