L. alaorii is a member of the hadrolaelia section Cattleyas. A miniature plant, flowers are usually quite small, around 1.5" and soft pink to white. This plant is nearly all white, but does have some pink in the lip so it is merely albiscens. New flowers emerge from the new growths as they are developing, similar to Sophronitis, and do not produce sheaths like larger Cattleya.
Not fragrant, but quite miniature growing and very easy to flower. L. alaorii can grow very shady.
