These two have been in a hurry. Christmas in August AND September

The second plant looks like a percivaliana but the shape of the flowers is a bit off. It also has yellow markings on the sides.

Very nice. It's nice to know that I am not the only one who has Cattleya types blooming in the summer. I have one that almost exclusively flowers after mid November, and it decided to bloom twice this summer. Strange, but who's complaining right?

I also had one of my percivaliana ĎAlbertsí bloom this summer in an indoor LED lighting environment, so there werenít strange light or temperature aberrations occurring. Many variables that induce spike growth.

Thank you all.
They are indeed grown under lights and they seem to be quite confused with the timing. I have a warneri with 3 buds just starting to poke out of the sheath now.

My plants that I grow under lights tend to bloom at odd times, just whenever they feel like that's what they want to do. I think that's fairly common.
