    THANK YOU!!! But, wait...what's an Rsc.? Everywhere I've seen it listed online it's been Blc. Whether "Green Genie" or "Genius" or "Genii," it was always preceded by "Blc." This is all so confusing! LOL But at least now I understand the difference between an official registered name and a "clonal name." Well, I think I do anyway.

    The pic above isn't my actual plant...I sure wish it was, though!! (I pulled the photo from the website where I bought it). Mine hasn't bloomed yet, but I'm expecting some action from it soon. It's got a couple of mature pseudobulbs that could spike any time now. I'll post pics when I have some beautiful flowers to show off! We'll see how mine measures up to the glorious photo above!

    Thanks for all your help! You all are the BEST!

    So, who can tell me what "Rsc" means?

    Apparently Rsc. is an error in the OrchidWiz awards section. It should be Rlc. Yen Corona (I'll change it in my previous post). The name used to be Blc. Yen Corona and many growers will probably continue to use that name, it means that it's a cross between a Brassavola, a Laelia, and a Cattleya. But the orchid world has recently changed the name of one of the orchids in it's background from Brassavola digbyana to Rhyncholaelia digbyana. That makes it a cross between a Rhyncholaedia, a Laelia and a Cattleya which is abbreviated Rlc.. So the most recent name for that orchid is Rlc. Yen Corona 'Green Genie' but the older name is Blc. Yen Corona 'Green Genie'. Sorry for all the confusion.

    Thanks for the clarification! It seems to really muck things up when the "orchid people" change the names of things! Anyway, I'm going to change the name on my tag to reflect the current "proper" name of the plant. Not sure why I've become so picky about my tags lately...I think I might just be turning into a bona fide orchid geek. He hee!

    Hmmm...yeah, definitely still pretty! Are you sure it's the same one? The one that I bought said it wasn't fragrant. But, you know...I don't mind being pleasantly surprised! I love the green/purple combo. It looks great even without the splashed petals.

    Exactly, it could be just Rlc. Yen Corona, not the Green Genie clone perhaps? Siblings can turn out to be different. I would guess that the original Yen Corona was not peloric, since I do not see that in its pedigree. The peloric mutant probably arose during the meristemming and tissue culture propagation of this plant.

    On deeper look down the pedigree the logic can well be the other way round. Cattleya brazilian treasure one of the parents of Yen Corona is the grandchild of Cattleya intermedia, fo if the Cattleya intermedia used for hybridizing was var aquinii then it does have a pedigree to be peloric. On the other hand it may have lost its peloric nature due during the tissue culture process.

    It was supposed to be green genie, nursery I bought it at said temperature could affect bloom color and offered a replacement. Just kept it and turned it into my first mounted orchid, but I do have a history of receiving mistagged plants so................ Just looked up where I bought it they no longer list it, and I believe I lost tag on mount, it has never bloomed again, did not like being mounted. Thank you Halloamey for the info and I think it probably lost something in the culture process, i appreciate the input. I don't want to come off as claiming to have something I don't. But I do remember a light citrus scent to it.

    Well, this is all very fascinating! I feel like we've got a mystery on our hands! I'm more anxious than ever now to see what mine is going be like when it blooms! Will it be fragrant? Will it have splashed petals? This is the most fun I've had talking about one of my plants in a long time!

    And I didn't even realize that the splashed petals were a peloric trait. I have two peloric phals, which are both quite obviously peloric (the petals have completely curled in to form a little triangle in the middle of the flower...much like a Lycaste), but it would make sense that this is what "peloric" looks like on a Catt. Fascinating! I'm learning so much!

    And I stand by my earlier statement, Stateless...yours are still super-pretty even without the splashed petals!

    Thanks, Amey, for all your input on this! You are a wealth of knowledge!
