Default C. violacea 'Muse' FCC/AOS x C. aclandiae

After searching for C. violacea 'Muse' FCC/AOS for a long time, I finally gave up and settled for this hybrid that turned out to be a little disappointing. C. violacea is, in my opinion, one of the prettiest species Cattleya there is. This plant has a couple of good traits like the lip and the wonderful scent but it is lacking in petal color and shape. It grows bare root in a plastic basket and loves it. This is the first bloom. I will probably keep it.

I think it's lovely! I love the color on both the lip and flowers. And if you ever wanna get rid of chids, you can always send them my way

Really nice. I actually quite like the contrast of the paler petals and the darker lip.
