Default Sophronitis pygmaea (now a Cattleya)

Sophronitis pygmaea, or at least I acquired it as such. Think it could be a very small clone of S. coccinea.

Though the flowers are great and 4 cm across.





Accepted name Cattleya pygmaea...

Beautiful and great growing Magnus. Congratulations. It does look like a small flowering coccinea.

I've been trying to find one of these for a while now.

Cheers.
Jim

Interesting ! At first glance it looks like a coccinea, but the lip is tubular, narrow and longer.
Its got similar shade of color petals but smaller flower....
Its on my wishlist now....
