New Cattleya hybrid by Di Ciommo Greenhouse

 I’m elated this 4 year old seedling has just bloomed! After three false hopes (empty sheaths) she decided it was time to reward me with three nice blooms and there’s another bloom coming on a second pseudobulb! Thank you to John Barnes for entrusting me with this special beauty and to Joseph Di Ciommo for the outstanding cross! I’m still waiting to see if she will develop any fragrance 🤞
