Slc (Cattleya) Sierra Doll x Lc (Cattlianthe) Blue Boy FLASKS of young seedlings available!  Flower photos show the parents used.

C. Sierra Doll is dominated by Cattleya walkeriana and pumila, and is a dwarf plant with color-saturated magenta flowers.  By contrast, Blue Boy - at least the specimen I used - is dominated by bowringiana heritage, being a large plant with large spikes bearing 8-10 flowers each.  I've used Sierra Doll here as the pod parent, though, so I'm expecting that to dominate results in terms of size.  I hope these will finish out in the medium, windowsill-friendly size category, but with multiple flowers per spike.  I expect they will be magenta, but will carry coerulea genetics so have potential there for the next generation.

I am offering flasks of this new cross.  These were among some that I contracted out for flasking, before my lab was setup.  The plants have excellent roots and are ready to deflask.  There sould be approximately 20 (15-25) plants per flask.  You will get one of the flasks shown, or one similar in size. 

IMPORTANT: THESE WILL BE SHIPPED OUT OF FLASK.  Be prepared to pot up upon arrival.
