    Intermediate grower. I thought I'd lost this plant, but.... there were two of them in bloom this morning. Flowers are 3" across and un-scented.

    Nice. Looked for this species in OrchdWiz. Taxonomists did it again. Now it is Laelia. Yes, it is very important to keep classification in right order, but…

    "Taxonomists did it again. Now it is Laelia."

    I think they should call it whatever makes the most sense to them since that's exactly what I'm doing.

    i'm sorry if this is a bit personal, but is the inflorescence particularly long?
    {are the two in bloom divisions of the same plant?}

    No. 24".

    "are the two in bloom divisions of the same plant?"

    I think so. One's mounted and the other's potted. Neither has a tag.
