    Default Cattleya percivaliana (questionable)

    This Catt triggered a discussion about what it really is. Tagged "C.percivaliana", first bloom from a sheath. It dropped the second bud as the first one was starting to turn pink.

    The color is surreal thanks to my iPhone camera and the bright sunlight Sunday morning. It is lavender, not piggy pink

    Nathalie, could you show us the inside of the lip ?
    It could be a Cattleya jenmanii.
