    I think this isn't a Cattleya. I reckon its an Encyclia x Cattleya or similar.

    thanks, roy, i had thought of that too and have been checking lists of crosses and just not finding anything... the flower shape kinda screams it, a bit like C Violacea x Enc Atroniceum...but ya never know...i like the grower and i know he was a bit busy when i was hounding him in my broken ass chinese, so maybe i can catch him at a better time next weekend :-) thanks for the feedback!

    Yes definitely looks like a hybrid, the only encyclia hybrid that comes across to my mind is Encyclia adenocaula X Encyclia cordigera. It definitely is a Encyclia cordigera hybrid.

    Lovely bloom Shane! I can see from the flower shape and lip, this orchid does have encyclia in its background. Lovely.

    Cheers,
