    Default Laelia Harpophylla

    I didn't start on the right foot with this one when I first got it but we are finally getting along just fine and it rewarded me with my first blooms.
    I can't get over how luminous the orange is.
    I am completely in love with those blooms!

    Thanks but I am not sure about the "magic touch" haha
    You should see my never blooming Phals and my rootless Laelias slowly dying in intensive care! The magic touch ain't working on those guys!
