    I think it is Bc Kosh Wallace (not Wallis).
    I went to a big store and got one in a bag. I wanted to get the Bl Yellow Bird [which is almost like a primary hybrid, I prefer to get species], but then I decided for the Bc KW, which seems to be a very complex hybrid. But the one I got had buds and seems to be a lot more vigorous and fast growing than the Bl.Y.B. I wanted to get both but i need to watch my spending and my space available. Maybe the Bc Kosh Wallace needs less light and blooms smaller than the other one. What is your experience? Also I would like to find out the complete genealogy of teh Cattleya Caudebec parent that seems a very complex hybrid. I can go back a couple of steps but would like to find all the way to the parent species.

    Stef, I grow orchids as a fun hobby...Not an exact science. The name of it is: bc.Kosh Wallis "Paradise" because that is the name on the growers tag! Other than that, I have no info...except to say that mine is a very vigorus grower, and seems to enjoy being mounted. Good luck with yours...Betty :-)

    Betty you are right, it is actually Wallis even if the packaging says Wallace. I see many typos or alternate spelling often. I am happy it looks like a fast grower. Did you rebloom it? how many flowers? any details and pics?
    thanks for your answer.

    This is a young plant which I bought last Spring. It bloomed last Fall, and has now put all of it's energy into growing. I think it had two or three spikes with three or two flowers each. I do remember that it is fragrant. I expect a real show this Fall, as it is growing like crazy! Betty :-)

    So it blooms more than once a year? do you have any photos of the bloom? It is interesting how it looks a lot more than a Brassavola than a Cattleya guttata (there is a lot of it in it). Do you grow it under lights or in a greenhouse or windowsill?

    Stefano, I grow it in a greenhouse. If you look on page 1 of this thread, you will see a picture of it. So far, it has only bloomed once, but I do have LOTS of new growth, soooooo we'll see! Actually one spike bloomed, and then another opened a week later. It stays in bloom for about six weeks. Betty :-)

    Stef--

    I am a pretty new hobbyist, and I don't breed orchids, so I don't use Orchidwiz or other software. But, just for fun once, I used The International Orchid Register / RHS Gardening
    to trace one of my favorites back to its parent species. It can be done with a little patience. Doing the same for your query about C. Caudebec -- it has multiple generations, but it appears the species involved are: guttata, mossiae, loddigessi, warneri, intermedia, gaskelliana, triane, labiata, and luddemannia. I take no responsibility for any misspellings of Latin names, however ;-).
