    Very interesting Amey, it looks to have C. coccinea & a Rupicolous laelia as the parents. The laelia causing the color change.

    My guess is C. longipes (ex L. lucasiana) as a parent or grand parent.

    It is like having two different orchids in bloom at one time. I really like seeing orchids that go through a color shift. Nice share, Amey.

    Thanks everyone for appreciating this beauty, just now finished a long conversation with my mother and we sorted the tags, I think I can say with certainty that the tag belongs to this plant, it is Cattlianthe Love Excellence 'Kumika'

    Just looked up the parents Amey, plausible for the cross to come out like this.
