    Great looking Laelia purpurata! The rich, dark inner lip is amazing.

    cheers,

    I've noticed that a few L. purpurata have a yellowish color deep inside the lip once you get past that dark outer section, and others (like this one) don't have that. Any idea why?

    Genetics? I'm not sure. I like this deep dark color the most though.
