    Default Rhynchosophrocattleya Iger's Sweet Revenge

    And the most beautiful orchid in bloom for us right now is this cattleya. Formerly it was a BLC but now it has been move and renamed Rhynchosophrocattleya. I just call it beautiful. It is fragrant.

    Thanks! No, it is quite large and grows in all directions. The blooms are large also.

    Why I was asking because I have a Sylvia Fry and it's only 12 inches high pot and all and the flowers look similar it also has a strong scent.

    That is lovely Bruce, congrats.

    Wow, the name really is a mouthfull. Maybe one day it will no longer try to keep up with the growth of the plant.

    Great colors, although it's clearly not my kind of catt--wayyy too large! Is Rsc an acceptable abbreviation for Rhynchosophrocattleya? If so, that's not too bad a mouthful.

    Cheers,
    Rob
