    I like the simple lines of this one. Lovely yellow colour as well. Unfortunately, I suspect that the odds of your obtaining a reliable ID is quite remote, Hoang .... just too many look alike hybrids out there.

    What a lovely flower! Too bad on the no name part. I would love to find one like this around here.

    It is always just a guess when putting a name on a NoID, but in this case I'm pretty sure we are looking at one of the yellow clones of Cattlianthe Chocolate Drop. Anyone who wants something similar should look for those. Might be some similar hybrid, and definitely with a strong dose of Guarianthe aurantiaca.

    I also agree with you, if look at the structure and shape of flowers, the trees that can be bred like your review.

    Very nice lemon yellow! Ditto to the above, the hybrid could be (chocolate drop x aurantiaca) or something similar.

    It is a lovely yellow cattley orchid , but I don't have one like it. Wish I did though and could help with the identification.

    cheers,
    BD
