    Default Cattleya Triumphans

    Smaller than expected, has nice scent, but not as aromatic as the C. aurea parent. Camera makes it look almost white, but it has a very light yellow blush. Nice markings on the lip.

    About 5 1/2" wide, but it doesn't open flat; that would make it even wider. My C. aurea's were larger.

    That's quite tiny . Do you remember how big your C. aura was?
