    Default Laelia Nemesis

    This picture was taken by a friend of my fiance, but we are now the new owners of this exact plant. It is Schomb Superbiens x Laelia Anceps. Very easy culture, and beautiful flowers.

    Very nice, Aaron! The Schomb influence adds so much character and color!

    Before I found this forum I thought all orchids looked like that gorgeous beauty of yours. You know, the traditional Easter corsage.

    That seems like a cool cross due to anceps long spiking habit, matching up with schomb's even longer spike. I like it, and cant wait for my anceps to bloom!
