    Default Cattleya Portia or Porcia?

    This one came with a tag, but the tag says "LT", meaning lost tag. LOL. The owner had several Porcia on sale, he told me this might be a division as well, but squirrels took the original tags. I didn't take note or remember if it's Portia or Porcia. Reading from online information, it turns out they two are different but very similar cattleya.

    1 spike, 2 buds, this one have very light scent.

    It is lovely and I agree, Cattleya Porcia most likely. It has been renamed to Cattlianthe Porcia. I believe it is probably: Cattlianthe Porcia 'sequin'. Looks just like the one in Orchidwiz.

    Cheers,
    BD
