LC Big Time 'nn' ?

KimhhJuly 31, 2013

Hi all ,
I've bought this orchid at Traders Joe and the name tag says " LC Big Time 'nn' " . I googled and couldn't find any infos about this orchid . The flower's pic looks similar to SC Crystelle Smith except for the curled lip . Could somebody tell me if it's a SC Crystelle Smith or something else ? It's compact

There is a register of orchid hybrids kept at Kew in England.
I had a look and couldn't find any "Cattleya" orchid registered as BIg Time or variations on that name.
There are thousands upon thousands of registered "Cattleya" hybrids and because it costs ten english pounds to register a hybrid, many people do not bother to register their crosses.
Sorry, but i think you have an Unknown or NOID orchid hybrid.
