    Question Any idea on this cattleya's name?

    I have been growing this orchid for several years. I either lost the tag or it is pushed way down in the pot, but either way, I would like to know the name if you recognize it. It always blooms around December or January and has a really cool lip as you can see in the photo. It has a light fragrance and usually blooms in clusters of two or three blooms at a time.

    Thanks for the help!

    I'm just guessing from my general knowledge of Catts Bruce, but could it be a clone of Blc. Ports of Paradise? I've never seen one with a white lip before though. Splendid orchid BTW.

    Check these out. Green Cattleyas pictures from flowers photos on webshots
    You might have your work cut out for you. Definitely has Rhyncholaelia in it with that lip. The sepals look like a laelia influence. I think you can about bet on RLC something... Orchid Wiz might have something - I will check when I get home.

    Can't ID it BD, but the colour and shape of the lip might suggest a Rhyncolaelia glauca cross, though thee aren't that many R glauca crosses.

    The best I could find in OrchidWiz were Rlc. Esmeralda and Rlc. Lone Pine. There are alot of crosses not represented with a picture. I just gotta believe it is an Rlc. though.
