    A brazilian rupicolous (rock growing) laelias, which are called cattleyas now ... I think.
    The red of the flowers is very intense, I didn't doctor the photo.
    There was another spike that "burned" as I am still experimenting with LED lighting.

    Fantastic! But what is it "angry" about? How big does this one get (most of the rups I know of stay quite diminutive)

    This is actually the biggest of the rupicolous family, leaves + pbulbs are 20" but flowers are small, approx. 2"
    It needs good light (Catt light), good humidity, to dry quickly and they appreciate a temperature drop at night, they come from mountainous areas in Brazil.
    Ideally warm sunny days and cool humid nights ...
    Some people actually suggest to water them at night.

    Intense color! I will have to take your word you didn't doctor the photo, but it's hard to believe.

    I would never lie to you Rob ... You know it

    Rupicolous laelias have very saturated colors, hence their use in a lot of
    hybrids.
