    I can't help you with the label, but that is one incredible Catt! Gorgeous.

    I looked and looked and cannot find it in Orchidwiz either. I thought it might have been Train, or Jain, but neither seem to be the right name. Certainly is a pretty orchid though.

    cheers,

    Tian Mu shows up as a cultivar name on several catts in a google search, but none of the ones I found were spotted. And none were as gorgeous as yours; I'm hoping someone is familiar with this one because I'd love to have it!

    Any chance its "Iian"? That doesn't look right either though.

    What a gorgeous flower, I hope you figure out its name!

    The only Tian Mu I found, might have been the same as Nicole had found. They aren't spotted; they are white with a red-purple lip with yellow on the inside.
    However, I did see a C. Green Emerald 'Orchid Queen' that looked a little like yours; except the petals are green.
    Maybe your plant was mislabelled?
    It's quite beautiful, in any case.
