Oct. 29, 2015: I get a text from Larry that said “OMG… lipless Cattleya” along with this picture.
No further discussion was made. We bought it immediately from Telly’s!
We have always been fascinated by peloric orchids. This is the very first time we’ve seen it on a Cattleya, though. Both flowers exhibit the same peloria where the lip takes the form of the petals. We’re hoping this isn’t a fluke and it will continue to flower this way.
