C. grandis is not commonly seen so offered here for your viewing pleasure (or not).
While the somewhat wonky form leaves something to be desired when compared to big flat Cattleys, it is who she is. I am a huge fan of both tenebrosa and crispa so you can see the draw for me.

Such a playful flower and plant. What’s not to like?

I had one before ... keyword ‘had’ lol...

I have flasks of tenebrosa that I wish I could pass to you to grow. It’s ‘Rainforest x Piping Rock’.

I have no problem with wonky cattleyas! I have a couple Including tenebrosa.
It’s lovely. Is it scented?

Love it! Where did you obtain it?
Peter, sorry for the slow reply. I got my grandis. From California Orchids here in Bolinas. I did check and she does not have another. It’s worth the hunt as not common.

Perhaps a selfing is in order Tom? Then send to Myers lab for distribution?
