Nah... I don't think you want that unnamed plant. Especially if there's also no fragrance. Go ahead and just ship it to me, and I'll take care of it.

Well it was free for me as well. Maybe I can chop some up and send it your way after it is done blooming.

Good call! The shape of the flower most resembles mine. I appreciate all the input on this orchid. As mentioned in the original post, I am not looking for an exact ID as it is impossible but just a general idea of it's lineage for future care/possible improvements. Pretty sure I will just leave it be and tend to it as I have been.

The spots on the lip makes it very likely that B. nodosa was a parent or grandparent.

Got two new blooms on this one. The color of the first flowers that opened a while back slowly faded. The photo shows one remaining flower from the first blooming and the new blooms that just opened a few days ago. Interesting to see the color difference side by side as the flowers aged. Also, it did develop a slight fragrance over time that was detectable at night. I can't really describe the fragrance as anything more than floral because it was so minute.

That sure looks and acts a lot like Bc. Tetradip - Mine has just finished doing the same. The new flowers come out very pink/lavender, and then the color fades to white, except for the lip pattern. And after fading, the flowers still last quite awhile. Mine has light fragrance, in the morning when the sun hits it, then in the evening (the B. nodosa parent kicks in) Neither are strong. Without a tag one can never be sure, but the behavior is unusual, and if not Tetradip, very likely it's a parent.

Thanks Roberta! I have labelled this one as Cattleya NOID # 6 in my database, lol. I looked up the Bc. Tetradip and they do have similarities and I might just have to get that one if a I come across it.
