Cattleya bowringiana albacens 'Tower Grove'

Comes from Belize and Guatamals warm to cool grower. Apparently a fairly tough character which will grow under virtually any conditions. 3 spikes coming, I put it up in order to compare the stalk to the Catt Portia of which it is a parent. The tall, stiff flower stalk of the Portia comes from the bowringiana which is usually lavender. It's a large plant.

Very, very nice. I have not seen an alba form before.
