    What a lovely hybid ! I am guessing it must also be very compact, a must have.

    Not fragrant but relatively easy to grow ( as far as culture, it takes after laelia pumila more than the fussy sophronitis coccinea),
    good light, open medium that dries quickly, good humidity, cool intermediate.
    The plant is 4" tall and the bloom is 2.5" across.
    Sl orpetii usually comes in a deep pink color.
