Very odd but interesting. Looks like a lovey lady with a soft scarf over her head.
Very cool orchid. Really like it. Thanks for sharing it with us.
I agree... it is a lovely specimen .
That is cool looking and beautiful.
I am thinking it is probably one of those difficult to grow Cattleyas: there is a group of species, mainly browns and lavenders I think, that tend to spell trouble. But it may be totally ok: I would give it a go! Thanks for sharing.
color contrasts couldn't be anymore bizarre! but awesome at the same time!
Isn't it though! And d'you know (I can't have looked at it properly till just now) : those lateral lobes of the lip are mighty peculiar- don't know any other catts with that lip feature... maybe I should take a closer look at the brown/lavender bifoliates to see if there is something akin to these protracted lobes. (I expect there is a more technical term for that little group of species that includes aclandiae et al...)
