    Smile Mystery brassavola/cattleya

    Hi everyone...This is an orchid that I gave to someone a very long ago and I'm trying to find the real name. I am going to receive a division of it (back) this week, and am sooooooooo excited. It is beautiful, plus fragrant during the day. Does anyone out there know it's real name? Thanks...Betty

    Thanks, Yew and Zain. I did find out that it is called bc. Baby Audra, and it's a 60's cross that is difficult to find. That "Baby Audra" is not something that is found on Google, however. now I'm wondering if it's even registered; I'll look into that also. Betty :-)

    Yew, I think you're correct! I believe it's one of the bc. Maikai hybrids. I looked on Google and saw a BUNCH of them I'd LOVE to have! Glad you like it Connie...It happens to be one of my favorites...Betty :-)

    In that case, the first time it has enough to divide, I'll give you a division, Bruce. Be aware, however, that I do not know if it is even registered with the AOS. or anywhere else. The name on it was bc. Baby Audra... Betty
