    WOW! Just got myself one in bloom already and really nice. Qestion though, leaves are quite yellow instead of the dark green that is mentoned elsewhere. Seems that the plant was exposed to high levels of light. Is this ok, flower are beautiful except the lip is yellow instead of purple?

    I found some more pictures on the web of Bifrenaria inodora with a yellow lip. It is obviously is a much less common variety.
    About the leaves, some of my orchids become reddish if they get exposed to too much light and rather yellowish if they didn't get enough light. Am not 100% certain whether same applies to Bifrenaria inodora though

    I love the color - the green and lavender shades are beautiful!

    Very cute, maybe I'll tell my Harrisonae that, if it won't bloom, I'll replace it with this! lol
