Default Cattleya (Laelia) pumila

Was quite popular back in the 1970's, but I have not seen many in recent years. Seedlings became available from Exotic Orchids of Maui about a year ago, so I bought some in 2" pots back in January. To suit my watering schedule, I always pot up plants in this size, into a 3" plastic pot with slits in the side.

The first one is blooming now; while a bit smaller than some that I have seen in the past, it has very good shape & color.

Nice looking specimen.
I too have wondered why this species has vanished.
