    Default Cattleya with no ID tag

    I have no idea how long I have had this orchid but I do know the last time I repotted it had no id tag. It did bloom for me last year but it was not a very healthy bloom, much better this year. If anyone has any idea what it is please let me know.
    Thanks

    Is it a somewhat compact plant, smallish flowers, longer thin spikes? Any indication it might get several flowers on a spike?

    Kirk,
    It is in a 8 inch clay pot so it is not compact. The spike is longer then most that I have. It had two buds but one of them did not make it. The bloom is not a gigantic bloom.

    Catts this dark often have ancestry of C. guttata, often through Cattlianthe Chocolate Drop (like Netrasiri Fireball, which was never a Lc., but C. or Ctt.). sometimes through Cattliathe Bactia or others. Dark forms of C. bicolor are an alternative to C. guttata. My other impression looking at the flower is some background from Broughtonia sanguinea. Smaller flowers and long spikes would tend to back that up. The slightly Mickey Mouse ears appearance and the fuller frilly lip (compared to Chocolate Drop) are also frequently seen in Bro. sanguinea hybrids, but I doubt this is a first generation Broughtonia hybrid. I think a large Blc. parent on the other hand would give larger flowers than this. So the conclusion of my rambling speculation is, a Guaricattonia hybrid, probably something like Ctt. Chocolate Drop crossed with a deep red Cattleytonia type. With at least 160 registered hybrids with both C. guttata and Bro. sanguinea ancestry, that doesn't really even give you a starting point. Sorry.
