    Those are beautiful...I can identify the second one...bc.Kosh Wallis "Paradise" as it is in bloom in my greenhouse. Connie, has the last one, she can tell you the full name it had the word "copper" in it. Betty :-)

    What color and variety you have in your cattleya blooms now!
    I love the green one most of these, but all are simply stunning. Cattleya orchids are so amazing. Thanks for sharing!

    Cheers,

    The Red one has very unusual markings. I wonder where it comes frrom, maybe one of the spotted cattleyas ( guttata etc ? ) in the background. I cannot bring anything like it to mind.
    Greenwich - especially the variety Elmhurst , which for me is a lot greener than this ( maybe on more mature flowers ?) is one of my all-time favourites. I thought at first that the third flower, the green one might be Epicat Lime Sherbet "Green Jade" but the lips are not close enough ; but perhaps the same kind of breeding ? Euchile mariae ( which Orchidwiz still calls Prosthechea, and is present in my collection under the older name Encyclia Mariae) has the green and white colouration and the big lip.
    A search suggest Ctyh Verdure , but that is an old hybrid (1961) and unless someone has mertisytemmed it , it would be surprising if it is this.
    But its a cracker - whatever its called. I too am turning green ( with envy).

    Thanks Geoff for trying to decipher the IDs. These are all old plants that I have. When I started growing last time, I never thought that I'll be sharing with others so I did not pay particular attention on the ID's of my plants. Since joining OT I have started insisting on the ID whenver I get new plants. Thanks again Geoff.

    They are all beautiful, Mazlan. Yes Betty is correct - the last is Blc Copper Queen and the green is B nodosa x C Netrasiri Beauty (according to the tag on my specimen).
