    Default What is it?

    Any idea what this is? Had 2 blooms (fragrant) & 1 new growth when I bought it. Now new growth has a spike with 3 buds, also has 2 more new growths.

    not too sure what the exact cross would be but it does look like it has some Laelia purpurata in its background... so I would say it is one of the Laeliocattleya hybrids...

    beautiful lip on that too, btw!

    Oh, don't worry Julie - You've got an image.....

    And I agree with time on the possibility of Laelia in the background of that plant, very lovely - frangrance too - a real winner!

    Image? I have an image? I do hope it's colorful. I'd hate to be dull.
