Now it won’t stop year round and we are now growing 2 cuttings and one is about to flower. So what have we got ??? Kevin and Chris, Tintagel

You've got yourself an orchid and what a beauty! There are many different types, this may be a Cattleya. You can go through the American Orchid Society's culture sheets and compare them with yours to find the exact type. https://www.aos.org/orchids/culture-sheets.aspx

While I was on their website I noticed they are offering free webinars to the public through June. So you can immerse yourself in orchid culture! Although whatever you are doing seems to be working.
