    Hello all I just bought a bag baby Cattleya hybrid today. The ID stake reads:

    Sorry, I don't have a pic. Have you tried doing a search for those names separately? That's generally what I do, it'll give you an idea of what the parents look like.

    Member TutoPeru has/had one of the same on his orchid list maybe you can give him a shout.

    The Blc. Tzeng Beauty comes up empty on google, Blc. Tzeng Wen Beauty does show up quite often but it might not be the one you have though.

    Hope that helps.

    I think there is a mistake with your tag. I am not aware of any catts called Lc. Males Song, but there is a very popular and pretty catt called Lc. Mari's Song. The other parent is most likely is Tzeng Wen Beauty since Mari's Song x Tzeng Wen Beauty is a known cross. So your plant is probably is Blc. Tsutung Beauty (Mari's Song x Tzeng Wen Beauty). A picture of a clone of this cross, Blc. Tsutung Beauty 'Taiyoung 3 Brothers' is shown below. So enjoy!

    Cheers. Hoa.
