Eduardo M. sends this incredible sequence of Venezuelan species:
Top left a first bloom of a Cattleya Lueddemanniana from Orquideario Cerro Verde with a spectacular lip, standing next to Catttleya Lueddemanniana “Clarines” fampus for the huge lip, you can see the new one is spectacular. On the right the first bloomer up close.
A very nice Cattleya Lueddemanniana Corelua on the left. On the right a Sch. Undulata alba, Eduardo tells me that Carlos Garcia Esquivel thinks it is a tetraploid.
You don’t see many Cattleya Lawrenceana plants, it is almost the “forgotten” Venezuelan Cattelya, but Eduardo has in this picture a coerulea form on the left and a concolor one on the right.
