Cattleya alvaroana syn. Laelia alvaroana
Found in Rio de Janeiro state of Brazil, this is a rupicolous Laelia (even though it’s not called a Laelia any longer). With the ongoing name changes, this species has also been called Sophronitis alvaroana and Hoffmannseggella alvaroana. Yellow/orange blossoms are held on rather tall inflorescences. Ours has been a reliable bloomer potted in bark in both plastic and terra cotta pots.
