    Default Laelia Perrinii

    I went to one of my favorite nurseries today and this is one of the 3 Cattleya types I brought home. The last picture was taken with flash. When I take the picture with flash it shows this color...does this mean it's "coerulea"?

    If it was coerulea it would look that blue all the time. I just bought the semi alba clone at our show last month.

    This is one of the Laelias is really a cattleya, and finally after a century denying it , so do the botanists. The third (flash) picture looks the truest one to me , the others have the colour influenced by the lights on in the room, I think, olr maybe just colour reflections from furnishings. It is so difficult ( read impossible ! ) to get the colour absolutely true in a digital image !
