    Lovely flowers but surprised this is a coerulea ... Looks like a semi-alba on my screen.

    Petals / sepals are not truly white in reality. They have a faint bluish color.

    Thank you all.

    I really like the form and coloration of the lip. The quality of your photography is very impressive.

    Very nice plant, beautiful flowers! Excellent photography!

    Is it a seedling from a cross or is it a cloned plant?

    I'm a Cattleya labiata grower because I could get very good plants from old collectors.
    C. gaskellianas I have only few, but all of them have good shapes.
    Although C. labiata and C. gaskelliana are very similar I start to like C. gaskelliana more and more.
    They are not overwhelmingly large but have a good symmetry and attractive colors.
    One of my goals for the future will be to get more C. gaskelliana plants.
