Default Lc. Mikki Nagata 'Sun Bulb'

This is a large semi-alba with two traits that I like in cattleyas. First it blooms on every new pseudobulb for the year. That's usually two pseudobulbs per lead, per year. The other nice trait is that they don't all bloom at once. I have three leads and six new pseudobulbs and they've been blooming two at a time. That means the plant has flowers on it for about three months.
