    Default Lost cattyely orchid Tag

    No matter how I take the picture the result does not do it justice to replicate the color. Lots of light and grown under high temps. Plant looks a little beat up which I heard that can be what it takes.Name:  Find out 2 - 1.jpg

    As I said I have had many orchids flowering in my greenhouse with about 5 more, that I can see, in bloom now. I warned you guys earlier that I had many pictures I wanted to share., I have been unable to enter them until today. I have more but have some orchid chores to do.

    The color and time of blooming indicate that it has C. trianae or C. warscewiczii in the parentage somewhere - not much help on narrowing it down though.

    I can't argue with the possibility of C. trianae ancestry, but there appears to be C. (L.) purpurata in this also. If we are correct, that narrows it down to about 14,000 registered hybrids combining those 2 species.

    Only 14,000 is that all?

    Slight over-estimate, more like only 13,100.
