    Default Cattleya orchid

    It was a long wait, but now this fantastic Catt with four BIG flowers is finally in bloom! I've lost the nametag: can it be a Jewel Box??

    It's beautiful even if it's upside down. Sorry I can't help with the ID.

    I think the Jewel Box are all red Catts. Either way, it's beautiful! Your pic shows correctly on my mobile btw.

    I went back in my 'diary': it should be a Blc haw yuan beauty 'pearl', shouldn't it? Since I'm no good at nametags, I should at least improve my orchid diaries I know... ;-).

    cakedaddy: Great that you can see the picture OK on your thing, is it Android as my tablet is? All my tablet pictures keep getting twisted in here and there doesn't seem to be anything I can to about it :-?.

    That's beautiful! I think you're right, it looks like Blc. Haw Yuan Beauty 'Pearl'. Definitely not Jewel Box.

    I concur, It's not Jewel Box but is most likely Haw Yuan Beauty and a real beauty, too.

    Katherine: Yes I do, but I should probably be gluing the tags to the pots or something... I've had this plant for a long time and I'm not sure where along the way the tag got lost (usually only look at them when the flowers come :-)).

    Thank you all for all you're kind comments!
