    Just to let you all know - This Catt. actually came with 5 blooms on two stems, but one was damaged by the nursery moving it, and I cut another one to let the three on one stem (or infloresence) bloom out better (knowing I wasn't going to take it to the judging table this time around). Further, it actually has a sheath swelling by the day, and it looks like maybe 2 blooms will come of that one. I think if I can get it to rebloom at some point, along with the opportunity to arrange better blooming, I just may bring it someday! The sepals are, as both Jose and I noted, a bit retreating, but perhaps that can be adjusted a little with better blooming arrangement.

    Can't help with the ID.
    I like the proud display of 4 flowers on one inflorescence.
