    I just bought this plant under its former name - with 3 lovely flowers and a nice flowery scent, rosey with a hint of lemon.
    I've read that 'Pendentive' now by many are condidered C. x dolosa (loddigesii x walkeriana). I wonder whether my newbie even is a more complex hybrid?
    Whatever its true identity: I like it! :cool:

    these are so 'messed up' you/we will never know the try identity until they are DNA tested (if the species can be told apart)

    This Catt. is always impressive whatever it's called.
    Now you'll have to repot when the blooms are gone.
    Na na nah nah! And don't take is beauty to your
    office.

    It's already in my office! I will enjoy this flowering as long as I can - and then look forward to repot it (an activity I quite enjoy - I find it relaxing and a nice way to get more in touch - in a rather litterate meaning - with the plants!) ;)

    I enjoy repotting as well. I don't like cleaning up the mess I make
    in my greenhouse.

    i find repotting very therapeutic - but not after 5 days when my fingers are cut and bruised!

    Non-latex nitrile (un-powdered) black gloves work really well! Easy delivery to your door from Amazon lol. Your hands will love you for it.

    My immediate thought was 'somebody has too many plants'...but then it slowly dawned upon me: thank God for my inorganic growth medium! (my plants only need repotting, when I get them, when they grow out of their pots, or sometimes when something has gone wrong and I try to save them by transferring them to a smaller pot, than before. This of course, when I flush the media thouroghly ca. once every month)

    I agree with you with repotting everything but cattleya, cattleya can be a pain to repot: roots clinging everywhere, broken pots, roots on neighbor pots or attached to benches and all, very nice pendentive!

    Lovely flowers and well grown plant. As to the name of the plant maybe you've heard of Walter Richter the great German gardener, orchid breeder and book author. I had the luck to know him in personal. He once said analogously....The most important thing is if you own and like a plant....to grow it well. Many want to write a name on the tag too, that's normal but not the most importat thing. Names are man made and are changing sometimes. Nature doesn't know names........ Maybe that's a bit of consolation.

    Am I correct that I heard ‘Pendentive’ was the result of an ‘Orchidglade’ selfing?

    Yes I think so. And I'm pretty sure I read Orchidglade was collected from the wild. Which makes Pendentive pretty much a natural plant as well.
    There has been some work done but nothing concrete yet. Selfings of Pendentive don't seem to show much variation. I wonder if Orchidglade was a loddigessii x walkeriana x walkeriana?
