    Beautiful, most certainly a Cattlianthe Varut Startrack hybrid or a very similar hybrid. Since when have you had this plant?

    About two to three years. I posted the original plant when I purchased it and it had 30-40 blooms! Thereafter, I separated it.

    So it must have been an old cross then since the plant has to be at least 10 years old. Varut startrack has been registered in 1988, so it is possible it is a its offspring. It looks like Pot. Thi-ti x Varut startrack, but it is unregistered. another line would be the Netrasiri Starbright, it also produces offspring with the splashes at the petal tips. There are too many unregistered crosses from Thailand it well could be an unregistered hybrid.

    Yes, could be also a Loog Toon hybrid, because the lip here much morewide and open than in Loog Toon. My avatar is a Loog toon, my first and favorite waxy Cattleya.There have been crosses of these waxy types with some floofy Rlc. like Haadyai delight, that could give such open wide lips..
