    I like the pattern on that. I think you have a classic case of a label losing some information over time as it gets copied. The family name of the famous Florida orchid grower is Motes, and there is no hybrid simply called Mote or Motes. Most likely this is Ascda. (V.) Motes Burning Sands 'Mary Motes' AM/AOS, but it might be Ascda. (V.) Motes Sunspots 'Mary Motes' HCC/AOS. It looks like the Burning Sands, but I can't find a picture of Sunspots to compare. Similar hybrids, mostly V. lamellata and V. sanderiana, with a little Ascocentrum and V. coerulea, so might be hard to tell apart.

    Kirk, I believe you are correct. I just went with the tag (hand written), but looking at the bloom and comparing it with others it appears to be: Ascda. Burning Sands 'Mary Motes' Hcc/Aos.. (Or at least that is what my friend (who originally grew this orchid) labeled it when she posted it here in 2009.

    cheers,
