I have 2 of these thanks to my forgetfulness or having too many plants, both have decided to bloom at the same time. The one plant's blooms have a more violet lip, but a more yellow/green color, the plants leaves are slender and more arched shape, the other plant has a cleaner green color and lip is more white with a bit of violet and it's leaves are a more typical vanda shape, this one I know is not a clone, at least according to the retailer.
I'm a fan of green color lovely ed.
Both are beautiful and well cared for great job. Love that darker lip one.
Both are very nice.
Both are worth having, my preference is the one with the lovely purple lip.
good job Ed.
Ah yes, the joy of getting seed grown plants. You never know what they will look like until they bloom. I recently bought three cattleya like this. Each plants' flowers are different from the next. And lucky you got two gorgeous varieties!! I adore the one with the green cast to the flowers...it would have to come home with me. I wonder if the bottom plant would be considered a semi-alba variety?
thanks everyone for your views and comments. this morning was first time I noticed a fragrance on both one is a citrus type scent the other a heavier perfume scent, both smell completely different. Connie I agree the greener one is my favorite of the 2 , I don't know if it would be considered semialba or not.
I like both, but the one with the purple lip is my favorite.
