    Mine has just finished flowering and the flowers didn't have the nice soft rosy tones yours have. The petals were more like your sepal colours.
    I was told it is no longer a Lc but a Ctt. Maybe my plant is sulking because of the name change.

    Jordan she is a peloric, but just the right amounts LOL. The reason you see the just a color splash in the petals just like that of the lip is because of the peloric nature. But most probably the peloric effect has been diluted, may be it is not a direct offspring of a peloric catt, but a grand or great grand child.:

    I am soo happy with Orchidwiz, I can actually back-up my hypothesis with actual proof. My guess was right one of the great grand parents is Cattleya intermedia aquinii, from there on the peloric nature has been reduced by crossings with non peloric plants giving us this beauty.
