    I had this Orchid but later lost it in an airport. I never knew the name of it and I want to buy another one so I need the name. Some people say it isn't a Cattleya but a Zygonisia. These two pictures I took before I lost it in the airport.

    Thanks Margo. Sure looks like it. I would love to get a big one somewhere? Know any place in Florida that has a big one?

    Thats pretty funny Margo cause the lady who bought it got it in Miami and gave it to me before the Okla v Florida National Championship Game near Fort Lauderdale in January 2009.
