    Default Cattleya (species) trianei

    One of the Classic Cattleyas. Not the shape demanded in modern hybrids , the sepals are too narrow. But... that's not everything.
    Blooms that look so fragile, like tissue paper, can't last more than a day or two, you think - wrong - 3 weeks plus, even in my culture, which could be better.
    And that true cattleya perfume ( mornings, in the sun - I reckon the pollinator goes to bed at noon ). You simply can't beat that ; and I say that having a lot of perfumed orchids ( I seek them out ! ) .
    Size is about six inches. This came into UK ( pre-show order) from Brazil a couple of years ago as a NFS seedling, has flowered reliably since then, now two flowering growths. Gets better and better.
    But species are an acquired taste ! Worth acquiring IMHO. You might even be lucky and get a better form than mine - there are a lot ( better than mine) about.
