Artist's Description

Nowadays “orchid” for most people means the Phalaenopsis or Doritaenopsis (Doritis X Phalaenopsis) hybrids mass-produced predominantly in SE Asia like they were consumable, even disposable “vegetables” .
In the romantic, XIXth Century heydays of orchid mania “orchid” meant first and above of all Cattleya labiata and its closest relatives.
For those who would like to know just little more about this orchid and its alliance perhaps this article might be interesting
