    Hi!

    I'm hoping that someone here will be able to identify this Schomburgkia sdpecies for me. I bought it several years ago and subsequently lost the tag. I do know that it's a species as I have only purchases speces in this genus. I do realize that it's probably now considered a Laelia, but I have yet to make that transition.

    This is a first-time bloom for the plant. It's growing quite vigorously in a twelve-inch hanging basket. Three inflorescences, each with 10 to 12 flowers. The flowers have a NS of about 1-1/8 inches.

    And here is a whole-plant photo.

    Thanks in advance!

    Best Regards,
