Default Your take on this L. Purpurata.

I have this L. Purpurata in flower right now. This is its first bloom and it looks strange. The colors are not symmetrical, but do not look to me like a plant with a virus.
Please, let me know if you have ever seen anything like that ,and in that case , the plant got return to normality next bloom or stood with a strange color pattern?

I am linking the picture from Flick since my pictures look really bad in this site.

Definitely growers have seen asymmetry and non-uniformity like that in orchid flowers.

It doesn't appear to be virus-related. Should be no problem at all.

Very nice looking flower too!

I thinks is a Chimera, but there are stable chimeras and unstable chimeras. I hope somebody has some previous experience.

I have seen orchid flowers that have regular pattern on one petal (eg. right-hand petal), while no pattern on the left-hand petal. Things like that. Certainly wasn't virus related. But really great effect.

I agree, that doesn't look like virus color break. Just an odd pattern, looks like maybe a roxo-violeta semi-alba crossed with a striata or flamea that didn't quite get it right. Will be very interesting to see if the pattern occurs again.
