    Roy, labiata can give those markings, thats why I looked at Portiata, two doses of labiata could produce something similar. I also recently acquired a G. bowringiana x C. lueddemanniana, I am guessing the flowers will be similar to these.

    Also quite surprisingly G. bowringiana x lueddemanniana eventhough being a primary cross is not registered yet at the RHS and I plan on doing that

    All quite possible Amey but this one is by far the heaviest in the markings. The rest are similar but too far away to be conclusive. I haven't seen the cross you noted, a flowering will tell us something.

    The shape of the flower reminds me of an orchid I have called Rth. Blue Grotto. It has both Gur. bowringiana and Ctt. Portia in its background.

The double sheathing is also common to bowringiana & labiata. I'm interested to see the plant pics also. Please take a close up of the base of the canes.
    Will take photos of plant as soon as I can. Thanks for your help in this.

    Okay - here are a few more photos - I hope they'll help. I just snapped them quickly with my point and shoot, so if there is any detail anyone wants more photos of, let me know. By the way, no fragrance. Again, the colors are pretty accurate, I think. I think there are around 25 pbulbs. The entire plant from the top of the medium to the highest bloom point is about 32".

    Agreed. Take a look at Rth. Blue Grotto 'Takagi' in Orchid Wiz. Very similar in color and markings. Good eye, Jeff!!

    Although the flowers look a lot like Rth. Blue Grotto, I'm afraid I'm off-track because my Blue Grotto is bifoliate. I see in your last post that your plant in unifoliate.

    Actually, I looked at that and I don't think it is Blue Grotto - Take a look at OWiz Portia 'Mayflower' - that's it. I've been trying to link into it but I can't do it - maybe someone else knows a way. In the meantime, I'm going to take some 'real' photos of it.

    PS - Jeff - to make it even more confusing, some of the pbulbs are unifoliate and others are bifoliate!
