    Default My Unknown Cattleya

    I was given this Cattleya from a lady who bought it from a nursery and she believed they did not know the name of it at all - hoping someone might have a bit of an idea on what it is - I understand that I will not get the precise name of it

    This could be one of the Rlc. Burdekin type hybrids. Whether its, Burdekin Jewel, B/ Heights, B/Dream etc I can't tell, they all flower very similar. The more I look, the more confusing it gets as its very similar to Rlc. Dream Trader, as well.
    Rlc. Dream Trader may be closer though.
