    Hi! As you can see, my name is Graddy. I'm currently a college student of Agriculture's Faculty in Indonesia. I'm new to this knowledge, and I'd like to know more.

    With this thread, I want to introduce myself and asking you guys what's your opinion about my cattleya.

    I bought it 2 years ago, bloomed three times now. It came with a name tag Blc. Julian Queen. I knew Blc means brassolaeliocattleya. But what confused me is, when I tried to search "Julian Queen" in RHS site.. it came up nothing. I tried several other site, even my local community, nothing came up either.
    The weird thing is when I asked local comm about it, they seemed to ignore me. Ouch. Is it because of the orchid or I'm just a newbie and they tend to ignore me? I don't know for sure.

    Anyway, I hope I can get along nicely in this forum even thought I am new to this knowledge and let me know what you think about my cattleya.
    Thanks

    Graddy, welcome to the forum.
    Your Cattleya is beautiful. Any grower can give a hybrid a name but it isn't necessarily registered with any organization. If your tag has the breeders name on it they would be a good source of information.

    Unfortunately.. no. It is just Blc. Julian Queen. But it does have the same shape, and color to Blc. Chong Guu Swan though.
