Is this ‘Mt. Ito’? Looks big. That lead didn’t develop all the way, I’ve had a few Cattleyas do this, incomplete lead but pushes out a bud with no sheath. I wonder if it’s related to fert or hormones applied at some point.

It is a normal eldorado.When i begun to learn about orchids , i red many of books about orchids, especially cattleya species.There are two sp what produce stem from base are nobilior( always)and walkeriana( mostly).This eldorado bloomed yet, so it is surely eldorado but this one strange conformation.

There was no hormone.This one got only standard fertilizer in winter, 400 uS/ 2 weeks, npk was 1:2:2.
