    Default ID help?

    I have had this plant forever and have never had any luck finding a picture of anything close to it online from which I might be able to at least start a geneological ID. My guess is I pcked it up from a raffle table at some point but I love it. Very reliable bloomer (this bloom had another set of flowers that the iguanas enjoyed before I got to it) and the true color is as in the picture of the whole plant. It's what I refer to as a blush strawberry pink.

    Anyone have any leads for me? Look familiar to anyone? Given the flower shape I'm guessing maybe an Lc? Another interesting observation is that it appears to be both bi-foliate and mono.

    Whatever.......it's pretty, great fragrance and I like it!

    difficult but beautiful. I wish I had problems here in Europe with iguanas at this time of year. Ok, let's find a systematic approach. Our member Kiwi used to like to post such puzzles. ( May I say I am missing Kiwi) So, what do we see? Multiflower, two leaves per trunk,

    When I started this article I was confident to find a solution, but now it is difficult,

    WOW, what a beautiful specimen.
    I'm sure someone here has an idea which cattleya this is.

    Thanks everybody.
    I've been trying to break this puzzle for some time to no avail.
    I suspect it's such a deeply cross-bred hybrid that I may never even get close but it's still staying in my collection.
