    They changed the name on this one too? You are always so good about being up to date on the names.

    Nice photo too.

    I have always liked this orchid. As for the new name - sticking with the BLC for awhile longer. Why the heck is Rolfera anyway?? haha..

    Rolfeara is Cattleya x Brassavola x Sophronitis, but this one is officially just Brassocattleya (Bc.) now. The "Laelia" involved first became a "Sophronitis" and then a "Cattleya".

    Very nice, with almost a tie dye effect on the petals.

    The tepals will fade to a burnt orange eventually.
