    Cattleya purpurata var. russeliana


    Variety russeliana is one of the delicate color varieties within the C. purpurata species.
    Caracteristic for this variety is the light pink lip with the slightly darker pink streaks going all the way from deep inside the tube until the lips edge.
    Petals and sepals could be all white or with a hue of light pink.

    Funny that you were unsuccesfull with the Habenaria. I have been waiting for 3-4 years to get my Cattleya ( which I bought as Laelia)
    purpurata in bloom and I am still waiting.
    Very pretty flowers you have.
