The Queen of the orchids. Cattleyas are our specialty. We have perhaps the largest selection of quality cattleya orchids in the world. The first 6 color categories are all mericlone cattleyas. This means that the plants are all 'clones' (propagated by tissue culture and not seed) and when they bloom the flowers will look like the picture. The cattleya crosses and most of the species are propagated by seed and the flowers will vary somewhat from plant to plant (like brothers and sisters).
