The Cattleya mossiae 'Campo Grande' came from Countryside Orchids ca 6 years ago and bare-root.  The flowers are beautifully scented. These pictures were taken under different light conditions.  2 spikes, 5 flowers this year.

The stronger pink coloration is closer to the true shade (under artificial light) in the evening.
