Pinkish tinge on edge abs bottom of SLC leaves
Default Pinkish tinge on edge and bottom of SLC leaves

I just recieved a SLC Lucky Chance (LC Tokyo magic x SC Beaufort 'Luna Rousse') from Sunset valley orchids. The plant looks good, bulbs are plump, and there is new growth. My question is, what's going on with the leaves? The two longest leaves have a slight pinkish red tinge on the edge and on the back. The smaller leaves are dark green. Is it a too much light issue? I just got it today so I'm not sure what it's supposed to look like. Thanks!

The plant looks great. Don't regard this as a "to much" light issue, but rather that it was getting the right amount of light. Notice also that the two leaves you mention are a lighter shade of green? This is the way the plant should look.

Thanks so much! I was thinking that as well, as I was reading up on it, but I just wanted to make sure since I'm new to cattleya-likes.
