    It looks a lot like the Ctyh. Siam jade, it was posted just a few hours ago by Rich I think. Have a look.

    The cross of Cattleya leopoldii (tigrina) and Prosthechea (Euchile) citrina has not been registered, so it has no name. It would be considered a Cattleychea (Ctyh.) under current rules, not a Catcyclia. Is there some reason you doubt the identification of the cross? The appearance is believable for the parents listed. It does look much like some clones of Ctyh. Siam Jade, as Hallomey suggested, but don't ever change the label of a hybrid just because it looks like something else.

    Default confirm the name ..

    Thank you for replying. I have the name on the plant (like stated) but the local judge mentioned the Siam Jade - and I just needed confirmation. I try to keep a very accurate updated list of all plants in my possession.
    Zululand Greetings.
