    I really like this one. It is so fragrant! Has a nice waxy texture and is actually a bit darker and more lavender than it appears.Name:  netrasiri.jpg

    Beautiful !! I like this type of Catt. hybrids, but I am not sure if the name is correct the petal and lip shape do not match up. I think it is a hybrid on similar lines or a very different variant of Netrasiri waxy reported earlier. Nonetheless on my wishlist

    Halloamey, the color seems to be darkening and I am not sure how dark it will go. I know it came from an old collection, so who knows:huh:

    As counter-intuitive as it seems, Waxy is not the clonal name, but part of the grex name. Your plant (if properly labelled, is Ctt. Netrasiri Waxy. Both parents are 1/2 Ctt. Chocolate Drop, so I tend to agree with Halloamey.
