First bloom seedling

Laelia anceps 'Figment' AM/AOS x 'Marble Queen' - Flower photo by Richard LindbergJust about a year ago I got this Laelia anceps 'Figment' AM/AOS x 'Marble Queen' from the grower, Steve Christoffersen. It was an unbloomed seedling but it had three pseudobulbs and a new growth so it was likely to bloom. And it did.

There is a slight purple blush that I like very much. I hope the shape is good, but I will wait a few days before taking it to be seen by Steven to find out what he thinks. In the meantime, I will take more pictures as the flowers mature. The color may deepen a little.


  1. And perhaps it will flatten a bit more. Whatever, it will be above average. Love to get my hands on one of those!

  2. It is just barely open, I was rushing things a little. I'm sure you are right about it getting a little more flat at least, and color often does change too.
