This was my first Cattleya species, I bought it in 1986 from a vendor from Venezuela. Flowers are about 4.25 to 4.5" across. I grew it for years at 50F nights. It grew as well then as it does now at 56, but now I don't have botrytis. YEAH!!! In the last few years I have added quite a few cattleyas to my collection. I don't understand the whole floof-girly thing, but I'm not going to worry, 'cause I can change the blade on my table saw all by myself.
