A near-primary: Bc. Star Ruby = (Brassavola nodosa x Cattleya Batalinii), and C. Batalinii = (Cattleya bicolor x Cattleya intermedia).

First bloom seedling.

When the plant gets bigger, it should have quite a show -- should have several flowers per spike, as I recall.

There use to be a cultivar around, some years ago, called 'Xanadu' AM/AOS. This reminds me of it. Was a great plant. As it matured it bloomed several times a year. Broke multiple leads. And rapidly (at least as orchids go) became a very nice specimen in a relatively small pot. With your apparent level of "green thumbness", I'll be looking forward to seeing this again in the future.

I've seen 'Xanadu' around – the MO Botanical Gardens periodically donates a clump to our society auction fundraiser.
