Exhibitor - Sergey and Elena Skoropad, NJ (Associate Judges, Northeast Judging Center)

Plant has been screened.

Although judges loved nice colored peloric flowers of this Cattleya they noted that flowers are smaller than parent's flowers. This is a first bloom and judges hopes that this plant can produce larger flowers or even produce 3 or more flowers per inflorescence when plant will mature.
