    Very pretty!

    Not sure, but I think those thin petals and sepals are Laelia characteristics.

    Thx Harvey--the closest i come to the name is brassocattleya orchids-But i might be wrong too-hard to get any help in Philippines for names-even the orchid society can never know or spell any names correctly.

    certainly a lot of brassavola in it and could be a Brasavola nodosa x some Laelia. It would grow better if it is mounted and prefers to be underpotted.

    Brassavola nodosa has a very creeping rhizome and likes to get completely dry before watering again and hence mounting it (direct on cork/wood without moss or with very less moss) does wonders. Best brassavola nodosa I have seen over years were mounted and the suggestion. Apologies if I had upset you

    The most commonly seen of this general type is probably Bl. Morning Glory (B. nodosa x L. purpurata), and this looks like it could be that hybrid, but there are many similar combinations that could look similar. (Or in current classification that would be Bc. Morning Glory (B. nodosa x C. purpurata.)
