Default Cattleya speciosissima alba 'Snow Queen' FCC/AOS

This little beauty is what I have in bloom now. Yes, speciosissima is an improper name for lueddemanniana. Now the "general consensus" is that this is a Cattleya gravesiana. While I was out of the country it has bloomed the last two Springs. Now it is giving a Fall blooming. It acts like lueddemanniana for me.

Thanks Kim and Tucker. This is one of my favorites. My daughter, who has not caught the bug yet, did a great job taking care of the collection while I was gone for 1.5 years.

I still have hopes for her though.
