Laelia purpurata carnea #69 x carnea 'Maria Da Gloria'

I saw pictures of this Laelia purpurata variety on eBay and thought that it couldn't be the real color of the flower. But it is.

This plant is in bloom right now. It is making a comeback. All my large Laelia and Cattleya plants suffered bad root loss when I didn't reduce watering enough and the end of the growing season in 2007.


  1. Where did you get that? The big Cattleya alliance plants are tough.

  2. I got it from the member sale table in San Francisco.

    Yes, they are tough. A scrap of green is enough to bring it back. It takes time, though.
