    Default Cattleya - not a real name here

    I bought this plant as one of a job lot at the end of a major show, when the dealer wanted to clear his stock before flying back to wherever ; it was very clearly labelled as Blc Eagle Eye "All Victory".
    There is no such name in Orchidwiz , or anywhere else I have looked.
    At first sight it is a good one - seven inch natural spread. At second look, you can see the sepals behind the petals - there is very little substance here, although it has to be said that white catts are often a bit thin - but I don't think the flower will last long. If it did, its a good addition to my collection, but I'd like to put a better name on it. I doubt that anyone can be sure , but any suggestions ?
    BTW it is a first flowering of - presumably - a meristem ; question - will it get better on subsequent growths, assuming well grown ?

    Geoff I don't know what went wrong, but Blc. Eagle eyes "All victory" is a registered orchid, this flower indeed looks like one. If well grown it will indeed flower with better substance and qualities.

    The name is correctly Blc. (or Rlc.) Taida Eagle Eye 'All Victory', and the appearance is exactly as expected.

    Tags often get shortened or garbled. Taida Eagle Eye is Mediation x Madelaine Knowlton. 'Kings Ransom' and 'White Eagle' could be the specific cultivars used.
