    My local vender was selling his summer bloomers at the March orchid show really really cheap since there aren't many of us around to appreciate them. I paid 10.00 for this HUGE plant. Isn't it a beauty. Wonderful fragrance too.

    I cannot find a grex registered as Grape Wax. Is it possible that your plant might be Cattleya (Guarianthe) bowringiana 'Grape Wax'? Even though it's a couple of months early to be blooming.

    I take back the Guarianthe bowringiana ID. Is there any more info on the tag? I'm really interested to know the name of this grex.

    OK, the brain cells finally kicked in, I believe it's Cattleya Bactia 'Grape Wax'.
