    Default My new Cattleya hybrid a guessing game !

    Hello all, I recently had to buy some stuff for our Uni greenhouse so I was at the local boxstore with a colleague. Usually they have Phals. Colmanaras etc. but this time they had a few Catts, one was very pretty but now I don't buy NOID plants since I am really building stock for some crossing etc. but to my surprise all the plants were named. They were an import which were finished off into blooming in Netherlands and now at the boxstore, still from the tag I read, I was sure it was miss-labeled and yet I took the chance, and it seems the tag was not wrong after all. After a some look at the ancestry and photos from Orchidwiz it does seem to be plant it is labelled. Attached find the photos. I would love if you could guess what background this one has. I will reveal the identity once there has been a lot of discussion hehe

    C. intermedia, C. dowiana, L. anceps.
    Second thought-aclandiae instead of intermedia.

    Very close It has both intermedia and aclandiae, but no anceps and no dowiana or dowiana less than 5 %. It has quite a lot of loddigesii. It also has guttata and aurantiaca.
