    Default Cattelya No ID?

    I assume this orchid has something of the Cattleya in it.
    Bought it without any nametag.
    I've had it for a couple of years and it's becoming pretty big.
    As a matter of fact, it starts taking up a bit too much space on my windowsill...

    Whatever it is, it is very cute. Since it is getting too big, why not divide it and send a piece to me? ;-)

    It's very cute. Does it bloom on multiple growths?

    It usually blooms only on one growth at the time and thus far it only bloomed on new growth. This happens several times a year though.

    Pretty sure that is an Epc. Don Hermann, though I'm not sure exactly which one.

    I thought Epicatt. Don Hermann too. The pic looks a little oversaturated on the green side.

    Helllo All,
    Don Hermann it must be.
    Many thanks for pointing this out.
    Mine is a bit greenish right when it starts blooming.
    Then it gradually turns more yellowish.
