    It looks like B. Little Stars x C. Aurantiaca.

    I have B. Little Stars which is a hybrid of Brassavola nodosa X Brassavola subulifolia.

    Randy's plant is further crossed with C. Aurantiaca which is probably his plant has the yellowish color.

    Oh sorry. Yes I thought B. Little Stars is a cross of nodosa and cordata but when I made a quick search on the internet what came up was B. nodosa X B. subulifolia - now I am confused! However, I strongly think that it is nodosa x cordata. Let me verify on the Internet again and hope the correct parent names appear.

    Randy, yes you are correct. I stand corrected. B. Little Stars is B. nodosa X B. cordata.

    Ah thanks jojo, I got a Little Stars from Jun and the tag says nodosa x cordata. Anyways
    I googled it and found that cordata is sysnonym of subulifolia, so we are both correct hehe.
    But which one is the accepted name? I dont know.

    From Jamaica, a medium to large sized epiphyte with robust, terete, clavate, 2 to 3 noded, erect or ascending stems carrying a single, apical, erect, often slightly arcuate, shiney, deep green, thickly fleshy, semicylindric, linear-lanceolate, acute, deep;y channeled leaves that is a late summer to fall bloomer on a branched, 6" [15 cm] long racemose inflorescence that carries up to 6 long-lived flowers that smell of citrus only at night. Grows best mounted on wood and likes some shade and watering while in growth and a lessening after the psuedobulbs have matured and the plant has flowered. This plant is actually correctly named Brassavola subulifolia Lindley 1831 which was an obscure earlier publication that came to light more recently.

    Synonyms Bletia cordata [Lindley] Rchb.f 1862; Bletia nodosa var cordata [Lindley] Rchb.f 1863; Brassavola cordata Lindley 1836; Brassavola harrisii Jonews 1969; Brassavola nodosa Hkr. not Lindley 1833; Brassavola nodosa subsp. cordata (Lindl.) N.H. Williams; Brassavola sloanei Griseb. 1864; Brassavola stricta Hort 1885; Lysimnia bicolor Raf. 1836

    Brassavola Little Stars = B. nodosa x B. subulifolia (syn. B. cordata) , subulifolia is the accepted name by Kew.
    The hybrid B. Little Stars x Guarianthe aurantiaca is not yet registered.
