    Brassocattleya Daffodil is a hybrid of Brassovola glauca x Cattleya aurantiaca, registered by Fennell in 1949. The thick, waxy, night-fragrant flowers are almost three inches across, produced on a plant about eight inches tall.

    Nice hybrid! Bonus that it has no spots from G. aurantiaca!

    Isn't it true that B. nodosa's fragrance usually isn't passed on in hybrids? I think it's great that it was passed on in this one. Did you remake the 1949 cross yourself?

    I'm not sure who remade this one...perhaps H & R? I got my plant from a vendor at a show...it's supposedly 4n.
