This is C. Hardyana, which is a primary hybrid between C. gigas and C. dowiana var. aurea. Growing in s/h in high light inside the greenhouse. It's very fragrant. The lip takes after the dowiana parent. So far it only blooms once a year for me, but is an easy bloomer and much easier to grow than c. dowiana.



And a far shot of the whole plant:

Thanks all. Unfortunately, it takes after it's dowiana parent and the blooms only lasted 7 days.

It would be interesting if someone has a cross between Cattleya warscewiczii x Cattleya rex.
