    Default Bulb or Cirr pulchellum

    At least that is what the tag says. Doesn't seem to be many pics of it online but the only pics I saw were colored differently. Perhaps there are dif color forms.

    Got this in trade last year. First time it bloomed for me. Flowers were short-lived and lightly fragrant. Color was MUCH darker than appears in the pics. [Camera just couldn't capture the color accurately.]

    Default Very lovely.

    I think the colors came out lighter because of the flash.

    Pavel,
    I have Cirr that looks just like yours, also lightly fragrant. I had one grower identify it as Cirr curtisii.

    Nelson, only the second pic was taken with a flash. The 1st and 3rd w/ natural lighting. Any suggestions [either w/ or w/o flash] for 'fooling' the digital cam to get the colors on a dark purple true? My old SLR never seems to have this problem.

    Hmmm, thanks, Ania, but the growth habit on mine seems a bit different than yours. Ah well....
