Lycaste skinneri, also known as Lycaste virginalis, is an epiphytic species, originally from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, with distribution at altitudes of 1650 meters above sea level.
The species was discovered in 1843 by John Lindley (February 5, 1799 – November 1, 1865), English botanist, horticulturist and orchidologist, being initially included in the genus Maxillaria.
Long leaves grow from its large pseudobulbs and the flowers, generally individual, are triangular, grow from the base of the youngest pseudobulb and measure between 10 and 15 centimeters. They vary from completely white (in the "Alba" variety) to various shades of pink. This purity of colors makes it the best candidate for forming Lycaste hybrids.
The flowering period is between November and April, its peak being at the end of January and the beginning of February. A mature plant can produce between 4 and 12 flowers during the flowering period and they can last up to 6-8 weeks.
The flowers are waxy, 15 cm in diameter and intensely fragrant.
