Cattleya trianaei albescens 'Buga'

This was field collected from the Buga area of Colombia!
I bought it toward the end of last July with no regrets and really love it!;~)
As the flowers mature, they're developing a very subtle sweet scent.
It's a first blooming for me and the photos hardly do it justice!

Austere and graceful...really commands presence.

Very nice... truly a classic!

I wasn't totally sure, but I thought that it was a good purchase.
As it's a division of a wild collected orchid and relatively new(I understood), it'd be cool to eventually have it judged and see what they have to say.;~)
I've only three growths, but would love to see what it can do with more.
The flowers are so perfect and pristine looking.
Not that I know what I'm talking about, but I think that they're really great looking for the species.
Thanks again!
