Default Blc. Keowee 'VI Galaxy'

This is an awesome hybrid in many aspects. The plant is not excessively large, the flowers are starred and huge, the lip is unique, large and gorgeous, the flower count on the stem is impressive, the fragrance delicious and persistent. By the way, it is fragrant not only during the day, but also in the night, a trait inherited directly from Brassavola nodosa. Yesterday, by midnight, my living room was completely filled with these (eleven) flowers fragrance!!

Dev, what has been working for me is light, very bright light (far more than standard Cattleya hybrids require), and warm temps. I also keep it tight in the pot, in other words, I could almost say that the pot is too little for the plant size. I also avoid repotting it often. It seems to me that this is a trait inherited from B. nodosa, which, in my experience, also doesn't like being repotted often. All the rest is the same you would do for Cattleya Alliance hybrids.
Hope that helps.
