From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Laeliocattleya is a nothogenus of intergeneric orchid hybrids descended from the parental genera Laelia and Cattleya.[1] It is abbreviated Lc. in the horticultural trade.[2]

Due to the recent decision by the RHS (the international orchid registration authority) to recognize the reduction of the Brazilian Laelias and the entire genus Sophronitis to synonymy under Cattleya, many hybrids which have previously been described as Laeliocattleyas are now classified as Cattleyas. (e.g. C. George Cutler)

Laeliocattleya Caligula 'Hadrian' HCC/AOS

Written by

(Cattleya percivalianaLaelia anceps)

moderate to bright light
allow to dry between watering
50% is optimum
warm temperature tolerant
blooms in February


A primary hybrid between the Mexican species Laelia anceps and the Venezuelan species Cattleya perciviliana. As expected the form of both the plant and flower reflects a balance between the parents' traits: the flowers shape and substance resemble Laelia anceps while Cattleya perciviliana imparts fuller flowers and a shorter spike habit. Temperature Tolerant. February blooming.

Cheryl P. earned Best in Show at the 2015 NVOS Annual Show in March as well as an AOS/HCC scoring 78 points in March of 2013.
