    This looks a lot like Rhyncattleanthe Thi-Ti, formerly it was a Potinara (Brassavola x Laelia x Cattleya) but when some laelias became cattleya, some cattleyas became Guarianthe and some Brassavola became Rhyncholaelia, the new geneus name is Rhyncattleanthe. It may change again LOL, but you can sure it is Thi-Ti.

    Default another one : and please don't call this one pretty~

    Does anybody have any idea, what this could be? Certainly a BLC - look at the frilly lip ~ my late husband bought this unnamed plant because it had such a large red flower sheath. Shortly after his death this beauty opened. I could not even begin to guess - any ideas?
