    I would be very interested in learning the exact parentage, if you could? I want to know where the intensity of the lip comes from.

    I'll ask the vendor, but it's quite a while since I bought this one. It's the first time it blooms for me :-).

    i believe that both cattleya walkeriana and cattleya rex are species orchids. With walkeriana being Brazilian and rex growing in Columbia and Peru.
