    I bought these yesterday from a local vendor. Nice healthy plants with beautiful blooms but no tags. Any idea what these might be?

    I find it hard to believe that the vendor did not know the names of these, I have no clue but if they grew them they should know. They are pretty!

    Both look very nice. First one looks like Cattleya Taida Swan but is difficult to identify correctly.

    Jack, I don't believe the vendor was the actual grower. I think he may have bought them from one of the nurseries down in Homestead. Anyway, ID or NoId they are beautiful nonetheless.

    They look similar to Shellie Compton and Naomi Kerns, but you could find dozens or hundreds of others they resemble just as closely. They might not even be registered hybrids. There is no way to know.

    I think the semi-alba could be Rlc.Chyong Guu Swan 'Ruby Lip'.It is certainly very similar in appearance.
