    Default Blc. Guess x Cattleya Horace Max (on tag)

    This Cattleya hybrid came with the tag "Blc. Gues x Horace Max..."

    My Orchidwiz is down right now, so I can't look it up in that, and there's no registration for either a new hybrid with this parentage (and I used Rlc. as well), or registration for either parent in this hybrid. I could just be having a brain-dead moment, but surely the tag gives SOME clue to the id. It's a medium-sized catt with medium sized blooms and a really nice floral fragrance. I really got it for the color, but it would be nice to know what it is for sure.

    Wonderful blooms. Love oranges of all shades. These flowers seem to incorporate a few of those shades on each bloom. Only sorry that I can't help with the I.D. AL

    "C. Horace Max" is C. Horace 'Maxima', and "Blc. Gues" is probably Blc. (now Rhyncattleanthe) Guess What. Apparently unregistered so far. Your plant seems consistent with those parents.

    Thank you so much, Michael - I probably wouldn't have been able to figure this out without the help. Now I can make out a proper tag for it!

    By the way, what is the abbreviation for Rhyncattleanthe?

    Lovely color combination! I'm very fond of a mix of yellows, oranges, and pinks where they all sort of blend into each other.

    Thanks, Horst - I'm trying to get the taxonomy straight on so many of these things.
