Cattleya schilleriana 'Tipo'

TOF2782
Cattleya schilleriana 'Tipo'
Brazil..

Small Bifoliate. Large thick waxy flowers are salmon-mahogany – spotted with reddish mahogany. Undulated petals. Lip is white with yellow in the center – with some orchid-lavender stripes. Furled mid-lobe is light pink. Very fragrant. This is a typical form – but very desirable, people are only used to seeing the modern “improved” forms. “A hardwood copse of stunted trees lies above, precariously perched over the precipice of the river in which Cattleya schilleriana is found. The cablocos know these copses and how to scale the walls to gain entry into them, either from above by ropes or below by hand holds in the rocks and roots. Surface seepages from above, waterfalls in rivulets, and proximity of the river below maintain the humidity in the driest season, isolating an ecological niche, where time has stood still so to speak, and allowed the survival of this curious species.”
