Laelia sincorana

Laelia sincorana in one of the smaller Laelias (though now reclassified as Sophronitis).  Related to Cattleya, it has very large flowers for the size of the plant and very showy flowers as well.  Both plant and flowers are 10 cm and this year my plant produced three flowers, two from one growth and one from another growth.  The flowers are seasonal, however, and the plant only ever blooms for me in the spring.  All the growths produced at other times of the years are without flowers.
