    Thanks, Alex, Cathy, and Jason. I've had this one for almost thirty years. It's in too big of a pot, so I only got three blooms. In a much smaller pot, I got 14 blooms in 2010. My husband tried to take credit for blooming it! I call him the GREAT PRETENDER.....Betty

    Definitely the classic Cattleya, perfect for a corsage. Tell the husband Betty that if he can pretend he bloomed this orchid he can also pretend you two are still 'dating' and take you out for a night of four star treatment. lol AL
