    I got this many years ago as Lycaste spp. from Bolivia. Known by many names, I still call this Lycaste ciliata. It is charming, but the flowers on this clone always face each other and the pseudobulbs, making it difficult to get a good presentation of the flowers. Grown in a 6" pot high in my cool greenhouse.

    Interesting that they face inward. Any fragrance?

    This one has a light honey fragrance that seems to come and go.
