    That is an Epicattleya Mae Bly. Actually the new genus (for now) is Cattleychea.

    With the Blc Yen Corona the petal's pink/red colors are along the top and bottom edges of the petals, leaving what looks like a white stripe down the middle of the petals.
    Do an image search on both orchids and you can see the difference.

    Lovely! Did you have any idea when you rescued it of how pretty it would be? Congratulations on your successful care!

    I really had no idea what it was or would look like. It was on the discount rack at the big box store I worked at. It was beaten up and without a lable. I figured at $5 if it died it wouldn't matter. And the orchid has defiantly told me thank you!

    Thanks for the I'd guys and gals!

    Mine grows very, very easy. The bloom will get better and better in your hands now. The next time it blooms you will start to see how pretty it truly is. Mine produces multi-leads which means so will yours
    Good Luck!!
