    Default Laelia tenebrosa

    Hello everyone.
    I got this laelia from Italy last year. I was impressed by the size of the plant ( the longest pseudobulb has 50 cm). This is my first laelia to bloom and the size of the bloom is also a surprize (about 17-18 cm). The only thing no so nice about this flower is the scent.
    Here are the pics
