    Default Help with Cattleya name

    Can anyone help with the id of this cattleya? It was tagged BLC Hawaiin Song. But I think it is wrong as Hawaiin Wedding Song is white (unless there is something called "Hawaiin Song"). I know it is difficult to ID correctly any hybrid but taking chances.

    Now I have become really good with this game ''Guess the Cattleya game'' (Also knowing that there are not many CAttleyas available in India) LOL, this one is Blc. Cherry Song Mutation. You are welcome.

    Thanks, Amey! Weirdly, the only reference that I see when I google for Cherry Song Mutation is from Prejith! And I bet I bought it from a totally different source than from where Prejith must have sourced. I got this about 8 months back. My first cattleya blooms! The only previous one that I had went to orchid heaven under my care Love this cattleya, only wish it had some fragrance.

    LOL, sorry I forgot to correct it, it is actually Lc. Marie's Song mutation and not cherry song. I have this plant, which I got as a NOID in India as most plants are sold, then a friend of mine bloomed a similar plant, when he contacted the vendor in India he told him the name cherry song, I made a tag, changed the photo name etc. Later I found out that it was not cherry song but marie's song LOL. As the printed tags were already made, it still is cherrys song to me LOL. Marie's song is a registered hybrid between C. Irene Finney and C. cherry chip. The other most close resemblance is by Lc. angel heart

    Now you will know why LOL. Anyways all major orchid importers in India import from just 3-4 orchid nurseries in Thailand, who have almost identical cattleya inventories, or some crosses between these plants, so its not difficult to buy the same plants from different sources in India.
