    Default Mystery plant, former bag baby in bloom

    Here's the puzzle for the day. I've had this a couple of years and it finally bloomed. Got it as a bag baby. It has 14 buds from one sheath and 2 flowers have opened so far. Some of the buds are really immature and I don't hold out much hope for them to open. The flowers are only 1 1/2" across and no fragrance yet.(Day 1). To me the flower looks like the Epicatt Volcano Trick 'Fireball', but the whole plant looks more like an Lc. I need some expert opinions please!

    It is Volcano Trick. I bought that bag baby last year as well and mine is currently in bud. I'll post a pic when it blooms. The clonal name on mine is 'Orange Delight'.
