    I was told that it's a cattleya but I didn't know or at least all that I have read hasn't shown me that they flower on spikes and not from sheaths . So I would appreciate any info you guys can give me . Thanks in advance .

    Looks a lot like Jackfowlieara Appleblossom, more commonly(formerly) known as Iwaganaara Appleblossom. (It's a Cattleya intergeneric hybrid)

    It looks similar to the 'Mendenhall' clone of Appleblossom, but I can't tell if yours has pink on the lip or not. Anyway, I agree that it is an Appleblossom.

    Hi guys thanks for all your help . I was looking around at some of your suggestions . Found something called a Collierara Apple Blossom on a site I was checking out . Have any of you seen this plant ? The I. Appleblossom does look like it but this one has similarities . Can the experts out there tell me how your supposed to place the correct name on a plant when they have these subtle features that makes then so different ?

    OK. There isn't a simple answer to the name of this plant. We recognize the plant by having seen a number of them through the years. Kind of like telling the difference between two similar breeds of dogs. The naming is the confusing part. When this hybrid was made, the genus name for this combination of several genera (multigeneric) was Iwanagaara. In the last 10 years or so, lots of genetic research in orchid species has taken place. This testing has resulted in a realignment of the Cattleya alliance, eliminating and combining genera. Collierara was the correct name of the genus. As more research was performed, there was more realignment of genera, and some of the species involved in Appleblossom changed again, requiring the change of the genus to Jackfowlieara. This is more than most people want to know or to deal with, but we live in dangerous times, taxonomically.
