This catt is always surprising me...it's always doing something.
The last flowers fell 3 days ago and there's what seems to be the next new growth.

Recall that it can bloom more than once a year... so here's the beginning of the next cycle. Fantastic plant!

I've confirmed that this year. It bloomed last late spring and finished the 2nd last week.
Fantastic plant indeed!

I think I've found a close approximation of what this Catt might be:Cattleya aclandiae.

Obviously I won't be sure about it but the one in the photo is like mine, with a few and "minor" differences.

Probably it's an hybrid of this Catt but knowing this is something I was not expecting to find.

Look up Lc Tropical Pointer...prob a lot of the same heritage, if not the same hybrid. TP has quite a few variants but they are all 2x/year bloomers and rampant, easy growers. Mine would open yellow with pink spots and within a few days the yellow background would turn pristine white.

I gave it away a few years ago but, if memory serves me, it also had a fabulous, citrus-y fragrance.

Yes, it could be. Mine has a chocolat fragrance, not very intense but in the sun it noticeable when one get close to it.
When the blooms start to fade mine turns completely purple. I have a photo of this behaviour a few older posts in this thread.
