    Talking Cattleya Pipitvaion x Siam Ruby

    Has anyone heard of this Cattleya - Pipitvaion x Siam Ruby. Cannot find any information on Google. Siam Ruby appears, but not the other. Purchased this seedling with the name tag. Looked up a registry of orchid names. Still cannot find anything on "Pipitvaion". Any info would be appreciated.

    'Pipitvaion' is probably something different. Such mistakes usually occur due to the names being homophones but heterographs (similar sounding but different spellings). You have to also consider certain linguistic characteristics for eg. many Asians cannot or do not pronounce 'r' or in German language an extra 'e' is used as a suffix to emphasize them. Hence spellings keep changing. Thats why when I got Catt from Thailand it was named Netlasili Fai ball, it was supposed to be Netrasiri Fire ball.

    Thanks guys for responding. The name tag, with the photo of the flower was with the orchid, when I received it. It read Cattleya Pipitvaion x siam ruby. I have researched the "siam ruby", but you would think that a typed title like I have would be correct.I have searched the Registry of Orchid names, but still no.
    Jonanda, when you say you have some that have v in the name, what does the label say?
    Regards

    Annette, one is Onc. papilio v flava x self. I thought maybe if you added that possiblity to the one that Amey proposed you may have another avenue to follow. Good luck!

    That makes a lot of sense. Sadly, orchid labels are often incomplete or misspelled. It seems quite likely that it is a variety (v.) of C. Pipit, which is a listed orchid:
