    Default Brassocattleya Hippodamia

    A pic from a local nursery.

    As indicted by Michael, this is not the plant labelled. I'll put it as a NOID for the time being until the real ID is verified.

    Vincent, that's an attractive flower, but I'm afraid it's not Hippodamia. Here's a photo of a typical Hippodamia"

    I'm sorry I can't identify your flower.

    Then it must be wrongly labelled at the nursery, thanks Michael
