    Beautiful ! Such a classic old timer. If you give it more light from the sides the flowers will not be placed so closely together and will space out.

    That's a classic beauty! I have several cattleyas with C. Horace 'Maxima' in the parentage. Apparently it has some quality that made it desirable for breeding.

    I have to say this plant has grown on me. It has colored up, nicely. The lip has lifted some and is now flared just enough. Thank you again, Pat.
