    Jeff, I have one here, same beautiful bloom. But my tag reads
    "Rlc Memoria Anna Balmores 'Convex 2000'", I wonder why? Maybe someone can clarify this.

    I looked on OrchidWiz and I don't see a 'Convex 2000' only 'Covex' which has several awards. I wonder if the 2000 could refer to the year 2000 for some reason?

    Or could be the gentleman who gave it to me, added to the label (maybe, who knows), but I will remove the '2000' from the ID tag. Thanks for that Jeff.

    I actually have Lc. Robert Strait 'Islander Delight' also. It's a very nice cattleya with a wonderful fragrance. It hasn't been as reliable at blooming as 'Convex' has. I like the 'Convex' flower a little better also.

    I can understand why this plant is one of your favorite.
    It would be one of my favorite too.
