 Hi Kelly

The term Christmas Orchids, is a common name that may e applied to a number of orchids. However, I would suggest the most likely contender is the cattleya species Cattleya trianaei.

Plants of this should be available in some specialised nurseries.



You can search for orchid nurseries in the internet and contact them direct to see if they can assist.

You can start with the following sites

Good luck with your search
