C. violacea `Muse' FCC/AOS 4"
C. violacea is one
of those stunning cattleya species. The flowers are lavender with a lovely
diamond dust texture on the petals. ‘Muse’ received a 92 First Class
Certificate in 1983. This species can be somewhat difficult to grow, but we
have had the mother plant in our collection for years and have been successful
at growing it into an 8 ½ “ pot. Make sure the plant is potted in a well
drained potting medium and do not repot until the plant has active root growth.
