    Some of the Bc's and Blc's are cattleya dominant like the one above. My guess is that most are brassavola dominant. Regardless, having brassavola genetics makes it easy to grow here. First bloom for this plant.

    Lovely colors.

    It has only a small fraction Brassavola while C loddigesii makes up 50%.

    Thanks Arne! What happens when they are 50/50? Is it the B or the C that shows up most?

    The frilly lip from digbyana is dominant. I looked up the direct cross between C loddigesii and Rhyncholaelia digbyana and there is definitely a lot of digbyana in that one:
