Cattleya deckeri
"Occuring uncommonly, the Cattleya deckeri has scattered distribution and is epiphytic. These fairly large plants may reach 30 centimeters in height, with lovely flowers that appear in the dry season. It is rather uncanny, being cleiistogamous: remaining permanently closed, but with the ability to fertilise itself."
