    Default Baggie Baby wrong tag

    Some time even having a tag doesn't mean that's what it is.... Mtssa Royal Robe... yeah sure!!! Bought this baggie baby months ago and wasn't expecting bloom until may be next year and when the spike came out I was soooooo exited. I wanted M. Royal Robe so much... I knew I got wrong one when the spike started branching. Here is the bloom! Don't get me wrong- I love it, but I don't have a clue what is it... Many buds blasted but can't complain for a first time bloomer!!! Hope someone can tell me what is it! I wonder how many of us purchased Mtssa Royal Robe back then?!?!?!

    That looks like Odonticidium Tiger Crow 'Golden Girl' to me.

    They share similar parentage, but I'm convinced this is Tiger Crow 'Golden Girl'. I have this plant and mine is currently in spike.

    It could be a Tiger Crow, but I don't think it's 'Golden Girl'. THere's no white in the lip on 'GG". I thought it was a Colm. Wildcatt variety until you said it was fragrant, and they usually have some red in the lip.

    Something in my mind is saying Colm. Jungle Monarch, but if you had ot depend on my mind (like I do) er, ah, I forgot what I was going to say.

    This is definitely Colm. Wildcat 'Green Valley'. 100% sure.

    After posting yesterday, and guessing wrong, I saw one blooming in my greenhouse. Knew it looked familiar.
