Cattleya maxima

This one just bloomed. It's still on the southern hemisphere schedule after getting it . It should start blooming in the fall hopefully this year. It gets sun from a south window.

Beautiful lip! And I think those faint striations on the petals are fantastic

Very nice and very distinguished lip. There's no disguising a maxima. I'm still waiting for mine to bloom.... any year now...

Thanks! It's still a small plant. I hope I can keep it happy so I can see it with multiple growths and blooms
