It's been almost a full week - the scent (which was absolutely delicious) has faded considerably. Yeah, I wish they lasted longer - one of the "challenges" of growing cattleyas.

Beautiful! I've been wanting to try one of these - or the Rosita.

Very nice, hopefully I'll have some flowers next year.
That is some incredible lippage....

Super-nice. I hope I can sniff that famous dowiana fragrance at least once. So tempted to try it again.
