    This is the new flower. No sign of previous mutational bumps. I put it down to a Hydrophonic fertilizer I was trying. Obviously not a virus, but hormonal problem.Name:  rsz_2img_0730.jpg

    Thank goodness it wasn't a virus. Such pretty cattleya blooms.

    Superthrive over dosage strength or too frequent can cause isolated deformities, necrosis of leads, distortion, disfigurement. It has been recognised as a probable cause ofcourse non applicable if SThr is non existant in your care deliverance. I observed the effects with catts, laelias and use SThr alot less this year with occasional drop in spray but literally occassionally, but i am a fan of this product

    I had a similar coloration on two of the leaves of my cattleyas, as was posted earlier in the thread. The spotting appeared overnight! A virus? Name:  DSC04127 - Копие.JPG

    I would guess a virus, in this case. If the plant was somehow stressed, symptoms could appear quite quickly.

    That's the thing. It was not moved, watered, sprayed or fertilised. Nothing. The only possible thing is that it received too much sun, as the days got hotter and sunnier. It sat next to southeastern window with lots of sun coming in. I cut off the pseudobulb instantly almost at its base. The cut turned very very dark purple rigt away. No other leaves showed this coloration. I did not throw it, it is sitting in a corner and that's it. I don't know if it matters but it a dark coloured cattleya, possibly some sort of an aclandiae hybrid.
