    Here's a picture of my Laelia tenebrosa which is in bloom. This is a species with large flowers (7" wide). It blooms once a year for me. It usually has two flowers per spike.

    Enjoy,

    Ohhhh, nice. I've never noticed before that it is almost tesselated in the petals.

    Oh, Forrest... Eliana said tesselated.

    Thanks, Allen. I really like this species.

    My plant is growing in a clay pot with Diatomite. I grow it under very bright light and intermediate to hot temperatures.
