Akatsuka Cattleya (Seedling)

Akatsuka Orchid Original Seedlings

What is a seedling?  A seedling is an orchid hybrid.  It's the offspring of a cross of two orchid plants.  Essentially it's the children from two parents.  Our founder has been creating seedlings for over 20 years.  These plants are from original crosses created right here in Volcano, Hawaii.  

Each plant is at mature blooming stage in a 5 1/2" pot.  The photos are samples of the offspring from the cross.  If you see 2 photos together, those images are of the parents in the cross.  When you select a seedling, the variation is wide and can produce any combination of features from each parent.  None will look exactly alike as do sibilings.
