    Default a catt and a miltassia

    I've had this cattleya for about 15 years. My sister gave me a compot of them. They're very fragrant and bloom regularly. The blooms would probably be larger if I had a greenhouse. This is the most blooms I've had at once. Oh, it's Lc Acker's Madison "Kyle" x Bc Marcella Koss "Pink Marvel.

    The miltassia's ID is lost. Unfortunately, the place I purchased it from does not have a website. It only produced 2 blossoms on the spike this year, but they are quite large.

    Is it possible the miltassia (my guess) is Alcra. Hilo Ablaze 'Hilo Gold' HCC/AOS? Poking around, it looks most like what I have.
