    This time I don't come with a photo of an orchid growing in nature, but one from my small house collection. This is a Laelia purpurata (not sure which variation) flowering now. _DSC7339.jpg _DSC7323.jpg

    Really nice!
    I have two of these, but they're years away from blooming.

    I have six seedling sized plants and they are really robust and very thirsty. I am soo anxious to see them bloom. Yours is perfect in every way.

    Here's a specimen I have in my collection. It appears to have more washed out colors compared to yours.
