    Oh, that's very pretty! I like the ruffles and the contrast between the petals and the lip!

    The classic Cattleyas are the royalty of orchids and this one is a crown jewel. Great GROWING.

    That's a nice mossiae. The colour contrast between the lip and white petals are nice. What stands out is that the lip is filled with the magenta colour up to the edge, leaving a thin white margin, framing the lip. What is size of the flower?
