I purchased this Laelia Pastoral Symphony ‘Lassen’ from Gold Country Orchids on January 14th. I was looking at a similar species Laelia and it was suggested that this one was a similar hybrid, and was easier to bloom. I is a large overgrown plant (for its 3.5″ pot), and I will divide it into (at least) two plants. It is in bud, and the flowers should be 3-4″, largely purple.
I wanted to try dividing a large plant like this. Now I have the chance.
