    Default Finally blooming! Now, what is it?

    I have been waiting until this girl was blooming to ask for help in identification. My uninformed guess is laelia, but ...? This is a NOID, but I would just like to know the genus if possible. I took a picture of the whole plant as well to help.

    So what do you think? It is "knock your socks off" fragrant!

    Thanks,
    Sarah

    I do not think there is much Lelia in your plant. would expect thinner petals and septals on a Lelia and much thinner pseudobulbs.

    It looks in many ways like this Lynn Swan hybrid, but my pseudobulbs are very thin and long and the septals are much thinner than yours. I would not doubt that there is some C. walkeriana in yours, especially since walkeriana is such a favorite for hyrids. I will try to attach the photo and also give the link since last time the attachment failed.

    This plant is {C. Lynn Swan x C. walkeriana} x B. Perrinii some growers use the - to indicate a cross hybrid used in a second hybrid.

    This is the same plant a year later and the septals look bigger this year.

    I'd say you have an Iwanagaara Apple Blossom. It's a lovely flower with a nice fragrance.

    Sarah,

    Diane and Sarah nailed it. They can get quite huge and the fragrant is a bit overwhelming (to me).

    Beautiful blooms... and I'm with Diane, Ania and Trung.. definitely an Iwanagaara Apple Blossom... now try saying that after a few drinks...

    I will have to show your pics to my plant so it realises it has to flower and not just produce those fat bulbs!
