Cattleya trianae Lindley & Rchb.f 1860
I got this Cattleya trianae as a seedling about a decade ago. The flowers were not quite what I expected, but I found them very nice nevertheless. Ever the years the plant grew larger and more floriferous. Unfortunately, during a spell of very wet weather the center of the plant got rot and it lost many pseudobulbs. It no longer looks like this. But these photos record the plant at its best.
