The plant I received as C. laetum from Dutch growers is NOTHING like 
C. decaisnei, which I have grown from Archibalds' seed of documented 
wild origin. C. decaisnei is a rather small species, though not a 
real miniature, and very pale pink its flowers do not open widely 
like those of C. laetum hort.
