    Thanks for the feedback. I've seen MANY beautiful Fire Dance's at various shows and did not buy because thought I already had one. Guess I'll be picking one up in the near future. (Man, and I already went to the WOC and Redlands).

    I thought it was an Epc. Siam Jade at first, but it is not.
    With the Epc. Siam Jade, the petals and lip are the same color, and the sepals are green.
    Your orchid has green petals and sepals and only the lip is green.

    The structure does not match a C. leopoldii either. The top part of the C. leopoldii's lip remains closed and looks like a hood. And the petals and sepals are thinner, typical of the star-shaped species.

    It does have a strong resemblance to Epc. Siam Jade so it could either be an offspring or a parent.

    I have a semi-off topic question.

    Once you've had a few post back and forth and all the experienced members of the forum agree on the name of a plant. Is it considered OK to write up a tag and assume that the information you were given is correct? Or should you leave it tagless and keep in the back of your mind it "may be" this type?

    I agree with Ron. There are a few cultivars of this plant. Most everyone I know has 'AVO' I just bought a 'Lakeview' at a big box store and I'm curious as to what it looks like.

    It is in a 4" pot and the tallest p-bulb is about 6" or maybe slightly smaller...
    I would say it will bloom within the next year. There is a new p-bulb about 1/2 mature, however...maybe this year?

    Ron, if that is the case then I would have to say that the Siam Jade is one of the few orchids where the "standard" cultivar looks so much better than the peloric version
