    Default alienate orchids in my garden, one and only cattleya, any possible ID?

    hi,

    this plant had been in my garden for slightly over ten years and been neglected ever since until recently. all it does previously is growing more and more bulbs. about six months ago, i took it into the "rehabilitation program" and finally it flower. four of them, one opened today. though i am asking for the impossible, is there anyone who had this one and can tell me the id. thanks

    got a suggestion from a orchid forum member, Blc orange nugget. was told the flower will open initially as yellow then turns orange. guess just got to wait to see if this is true.
