Epicatarthron Hilo Adventure (Cattleya Motte Spot x Epiarthron Kebing Mark Ragbir)
I saw this plant growing in a garden in the mountains of the west side of the Island of Puerto Rico, close to the town of Lares. Local conditions appear to be very favorable to its growth. It rains often, sometimes daily for weeks or even months. Temperatures are lower that in the coast of the island. The plant combines the genus Cattleya, Epidendrum and Caularthron.
