Pretty picture: Cattleya aurantiaca

Another unruffled Cattleya. Even less ruffled than the last one, in fact.

Somewhat scrambling for time again today, so I'll just point you to this page for more information on the species. Officially, the name has been changed to Guarianthe aurantiaca, but if you want to pretend that you didn't read that, I wouldn't blame you.

Developing an Orchid Collection with Backbulbs has a page on C. aurantiaca as well.

You're right, they're gorgeous without ruffles.

Now that's an orchid I can get behind.

I've got a little baby one of these...I really hope it will bloom some day
