    Default Cattleya ID

    I bought several plants that were not labeled and now that they are blooming, I am hoping to put a name to the plant, this one has me completely stumped! The blooms don't seem to open fully. The blooms started opening last night, so I guess they might continue to open, but the back petals curl away from the plant...I don't think I have seen one like this before, unless it is a problem with the humidity level? Let me know if anyone has a guess...thanks guys!

    Don't know the ID but the curling back looks pretty normal to me. A lot of Cattleya x's are like this. That plant sure likes to flower!

    You might look up "Cattleya splash". There are a few Cattleya that look like yours. You have one gorgeous Cattleya no matter what you decide to call it. Very nice!

    It has C. trianae in the parentage, but it is one of many hybrids, so chances of narrowing it down may be difficult.
