    Default Laelia anceps

    Came back from vacation and found this in bloom. Moving it I popped off a bloom. I've had this one for years. Almost lost it two years ago and finally making a comeback.

    Beautiful dark colors on that Laelia. I'm jealous, I had three Laelia anceps for several years. They grew very slowly and never bloomed. They never looked healthy so I finally got rid of them. I've always wanted to grow them but I think South Florida maybe too hot. Yours has wonderful colors. Excellent photography also.

    Sweet anceps! These and purpurata are my favorites in the Catt alliance...I will promptly show your pics to my plant to give it something to aspire to! I don't see enough of these.
