My spelling prob won't be so good, but Blc is a cross between Brassavola, Laelia and Cattleya, Brassolaeliacattleya, would take similiar conditions to Catts as far as I know. Someone more knowledgable may chime in though.

Blc definetely stands for a Brassolaeliocattleya which like Nick said it's a cross involving Brassavola+Laelia+Cattleya. Now if we go by the new nomenclature it would be Rhyncocattleguarathe or so I think. They keep changing the names...LOL

Aha! So in general, I should care for it like a Catt?

You got it Bc, Lc, Blc and C are all cattleya crosses therefore the same care.

Do you want the really bad news? Here is the new name for your plant.......lol.

Marriottara Golden Tang (Rhynchosophrocattleya Waikiki Gold x Brassophronitis Richard Mueller)

Isn't it always the way? So instead of Blc it is now Mrr but don't go changing the name tag just yet.

Well, if I can't pronounce it, I don't have to call it by name.

Oh, and on top of all that, I hope you also know that Pluto is no longer a planet. It's a dwarf planet now.

Sheeesh!

I have a rhyncosophracattleya too! I was so surprised ro see one mentioned here. I'm treating it as a Cattleya, and I've just replanted it. If it flowers, I'll keep you posted. Here's a picture, but it still looks a little sorry for itself I think.
