    Love all of them, the second one could be Cattlianthe Hazel Boyd 'Apricot Glow' AM/AOS.
    Love the first one!

    If the colors are true, then the first is a magnificent violet blue orchid, I also like the second one.

    Number one is a miltassia, two is a cattleya type (probably Hazel Boyd as Alex notes - maybe a hybrid of that orchid) and the third one is an oncidium type. All are splendid blooms.

    cheers,

    loving the new wave of the compact catts adore this catt. Gorgeous variables of orange tones and the 'flamboyance' of the floofyness kept to a minimum.

    Have not noticed the colour palette of the miltassia around yet, very nice does it show any signs in veg growth of the psb 'step up' characteristics as it spirals out and above the pot as it continually grows from leed. Can see this in a collection with the B. Peggy Ruths.

    The Mtssa buds on a straight cane. There is no curl to it. The pseudobulbs are in a spiral, linear growth shape and quite large. There are only 5..... I have been having some difficulty as of late with that one. It seems to have gone completly dormant. No new roots, no new buds, no activity in over 8 months.... I have unpotted it, added some rooting hormone and repotted it back into the same pot it used to like. The roots dont look that healthy anymore and the bulbs are getting a little shrivled for my taste and have me worried. Nothing has changed, but time will tell. I dont want to lose it as it looks like that picture... Beautiful violet color. It does not have CMV or ORSV as i have tested all my orchids for those.... I think it is just bad roots.

    And after researching the Cattlianthe Hazel Boyd 'Apricot Glow' AM/AOS I think that is what I have for number 2.
