I lost the tag. Can you identify? It’s a Better-Gro bag baby from Home Depot or Lowes last year. The flower is about 1.5 inches across and smells like lilac. I tried a reverse image search, and google suggested Cattleya labiata (a species), but I’m pretty sure this is a hybrid. Thanks.

It probably has Laelia anceps or a relative in its ancestry.

I think it might be C. Star Parade (syn. Lc. Star Parade) from Palmer Orchids.

Looks like a dead ringer for C. Star Parade! Does that ring a bell with your lost tag t_howell?

estacion seca,, I just looked up the ancestry and I was super surprised to see that L. anceps is nowhere to be found. Would have guessed it was mostly bifiate cattleya and anceps.

Whatever it is, I'd just call it gorgeous. Sure am jealous that there isn't anyplace around here that sells bag babies... but maybe that's a good thing for me.

It is beautiful! Better than I was expecting. According to my notes, I only paid $7 for it at Home Depot last year.

The only orchid I ever see in Home Depot here in Oklahoma is Phals.

Wow!! Looks like I have to start checking my local Home Depot more, I’ve never seen anything more than Phalaenopsis or a few Oncidium types.
