A large growing Cattleya like plant, this needs a large basket or shallow pot for good drainage. A robust grower, fertiliser and water when the new leads appear will produce heads of quite spectacular flowers. Intermediate grower, it does not like to be wet when resting, so after the flowers fade, keep somewhat on the dry side until the new growth appears. Laelia tenebrosa is fragrant flowered species from Brazil.
