    C. loddiara X C. Loddigesii x C. Aurantiaca That was the best that I could read the handwritting on the pedigree. Please correct me.

    Hi Cin,

    C. aurantiaca is a species, as is C. loddigesii. I find no Loddiara. There are Cattleyas: Loddiaca, Loddi-Fair and Loddorado. All three hybrids.

    Ah...I got it! C. Loddiaca is a primary hybrid between C. aurantiaca x C. loddigesii. Yours must be a Loddiaca! A pretty one, too!

    Thanks Julie, actually what I percieved as an R LoddiaRa could easily be a C. So you are correct it is a Loddiaca. This guy had really difficult handwriting.
