This sensational Cattleya hybrid with large, 6 – 8-inch, fragrant, bright yellow, flowers with a ruffled red lip adorned with golden “eyes” is named after the popular former two-term mayor of Tainan, Taiwan, William Lai Ching-Te. Mr. Lai is a strong supporter of the orchid industry in Taiwan and of the American Orchid Society Judging at the annual Taiwan International Orchid Show, which is held in Tainan. He is now serving as the Vice President of Taiwan.


The influence from pod parent, Blc. Village Chief Rose, keeps this plant half the size as the pollen parent Blc. Liu’s Joyance, but Blc. Liu’s Joyance dominates the extraordinary size of flower and its amazing lip. The flowers are large, bright yellow with contrasting ruffled red lip with intriguing golden “eyes”.  Plants are stocky and robust. When mature, this plant will reach about 12 inches. It can be grown under lights and can flower twice a year. Can be grown outdoors in areas that have frost-free winters and temperatures do not fall below 50°F. Note, Blc. Lai Ching-Te 'Tainan' is also known as Rlc. Lai Ching-Te 'Tainan' since the Brassavola digbyana in the background of both parents is now classified as Rhyncholaelia digbyana. Highly recommended for Cattleya lovers and fans of fragrant orchids.
