    That could easily be an awarded orchid because of it's great shape and good spacing of the flowers. Unfortunately there are so many different white cattleyas with yellow throats that you'll never know for sure what the name. But it really doesn't matter what the name is, it's a beautiful classic cattleya.

    Maybe Cattleya Bob Betts? As Jeff said, there are so many like this beauty that it is really hard to tell. It sure is a beauty. Stay safe in the storm.

    cheers,

    Wow! Normally I'm not a big fan of big showy Catts but this one would certainly get a nice spot in my collection! Well done.

    What a splendid presentation! Well-done, Beny! I agree with Jeff that it would be an awardable plant and it's a shame you don't have the id. I've seen cattleyas awardedthat weren't even half as gorgeous as this one.

    Cool White Cattleya continues to flower!

    Hi everyone just wanted to update you all regarding my white Catt continuing to flower, original bloom with three flowers had already fallen off the picture below was taken today, this bloom has been open over a week now maybe the flower is already a little shrivel, and as you can see behind the left pedal another flower is coming, this is really been a surprise cause this orchid normally flowers once a year. So far I've had this beautiful orchid flowering for over a month now. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
