Hi Guys,
Seasons greetings to all.
This is the image of c.nobilior, sib cross seedling and the first one to flower. Got the compot of this sib cross during 2013.
Grew them on a piece of hard tree fern chunk, actually the tree fern was sliced and the seedling is sandwiched between ,tied with a wire hung and grown in full sun. Would like to hear the comments.

please note an error was made by me, the sib cross should read as cattleya nobilior 'Amaliae' X cattleya nobilior 'Blush', would post the image of the tag.

Beautiful delicate color, Prabhi. I also like the triangular lip common in the cattleya nobilior orchids. Very well grown, congratulations.

Grace enough to confess and forsake your sins. Patience enough to toil until some good is accomplished. Charity enough to see some good in your neighbor.

It's a beauty, Prabhi. I'd be interested to see your tree fern mount - could you possibly post another picture showing the whole plant and the mount as well?
