    G'day Annette, nice flowers! Any idea what #3 is? I reckon I bought it's twin at the Caboolture markets a couple of years back.
    Another forum member thinks it may have Schom. aka Myrmecophila in it's breeding.
    The stall holder was an Asian lady who was selling something entirely different but had this one huge orchid in flower for sale. I think it set me back $15 but I went halves with a neighbour. Mine has just finished flowering.

    Scrubber, that would be Cattleya Percivaliana x Guar. Bowriniana. Not much wrong you can do with these. Although last year, the sheaths formed, but the flower died. This year is making up for it.
